Random: I just finished last week’s New Yorker on the bus.
Did you know that…
- A penny costs 1.7 cents to make?
- A nickel costs ~10 cents to make?
- A lobby funded by Jarden Zinc Products (major supplier of penny cores for the U.S. Mint) prevented the last "get rid of pennies" legislature?
- Coinstar is now one of the biggest pro-penny lobbies?
Ah, the way the world works. 🙂
