Canada will no longer be minting pennies. Apparently it costs more to make them than they are worth. From now on if we are making a cash transaction the total will be rounded off. If the amount is $1.23 it will be rounded down to $1.20, and if it's $1.48 it will be rounded up to $1.50. I don't think I will really miss them. But I will miss saying, "See a penny pick it up, then all day you'll have good luck."
