Letter to the Editor -- Saving Money

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Did you know Canada stopped minting one-cent coins? Canada stopped because it cost more to produce the coin then its face value. Canada is saving money. The USA has the same problem with our coins. The one-cent and the five-cent coins cost more to produce than their face value.

If our government is trying to save money, why can't it stop minting these coins?

Our government has stopped other coins, The Susan B. $1 coin, the half-dollar coin and even the $1 Presidential Coin.

Call your congressman. Their address and phone numbers are listed in this paper often.
