The Associated Press: Design changes unveiled for Lincoln penny
They should maybe redesign them in the form of getting rid of them.
Why? So the prices of everything would rise in increments of 5 cents instead of just a penny?
My vote is for Lincoln sharing a bed with his "lifelong friend" Joshua Speed.
or at least a still from that gay bar song. that would be awesome.
Wow. Another government waste of money. Who woulda thunk it.
I remember three or four months ago, they were talking about switching the pennies from copper to steel. The Government did that during WWII. They said the price of copper keeps going up.
Yeah there is concern that people may melt down their penny collections and sell the copper instead.
No thanks to the penny changes. It costs more than a penny to mint a penny, so I'm in favor of getting rid of it altogether.
Every time I see the thread title in the forum listing, I think it says "Get ready for new... penises?" and I get a little excited because I mean really, who wouldn't want a new penis? And then I remember what the thread is about and that little bit of excitedness goes away.
Can you blame me? I mean, who can get excited over a penny?
Apart from a numismatist, of course.
Bring back the Indian Head Penny!!!
How about we stop inflating away the value of our money instead?
Can always change it to "Get ready for Lincoln's penis"
I like pennies, becasue I don't feel like throwing my nickels & dimes at bums, a waste it is.
I still like spitting on quaters and rolling them down the shopping aisle. A kid always goes for it, before picking it up and going "ew man"
They should make pennies out of corn like all the food.
Yay, new pennies!
It's really a waste, they should do that to the five dollar bill or just make a general collection for the collectors...because nobody gives a second thought to pennies anymore, heck, I have to superglue quarters and dimes now @ elementary school streets because kids won't pick the pennies up anymore...
and yeah, I couldn't help but read that as something else besides pennies...like I said, no one gives them a second thought...
I want the crazy Mary Todd Lincoln half penny, or a penny with Lincoln shaving his beard.
can't you just say "coin collectors?"

Pennies equal dollars!
