Canada pennies verses U.S. pennies

#1 Unread post by stevesherrill »

Since Canada stopped making and using pennies then why do we still receive them in change here in the U.S.?

Its just a testament to how big mintages in millions really are. There are that many left here in circulation. Also, we don;\'t melt them down, so as long as they are not spent north of the border, they will remain here.
