Kill the Penny

This petition had 70 supporters

The penny has been part of America since 1792 when the first American mint was made. But many now wonder, “Is it time to discontinue the penny?”

Getting rid of the penny may seem like a trivial thing but the US spends about $132 million dollars to make approximately 50 million dollars worth of pennies. That is $82 million thrown out every year because the US continues to make the penny. And this is a well-known problem.

Many times politicians have tried to get rid of the penny but it never worked. If this keeps on happening, the prices to make a penny will go up due to inflation and lead to many more problems than we have now. We could avoid all of this by coming together and showing to the US government that the American people want to get rid of the penny.
