Think back a few years – when it was announced that production of the penny would come to an end.
Some people were sad to see the end of the penny – others were glad to see it go.
Now comes news from Desjardins Financial services that they think the nickel is the next to go. They say it may follow in the penny’s footsteps as quickly as five years from now.
But wait, there’s more change to our money – they’re also saying that the five dollar bill should be replaced by a coin… just like the Looney replaced the dollar bill.
So, let’s see… we have the Looney, the Twoney…what would the five be? Foony? Fiveoony? Hmmm….
What do you think? Would you care if the nickel disappeared? Would you like to see a $5 coin?
