whether you agree with the results or not, you have to give Canada credit for getting things done.

1 healthcare (good or not,they addressed it
2. eliminate paper dollar bills
3. and now maybe the penny

Canada is also going to follow in Australia's & New Zealand's footsteps by changing over to issuing polymer plastic banknotes as well.

I didn't know Australia had down away with the cent. I know some folks down there and I think I will ask them how well it was accepted.

We did away with 1 & 2 pieces in 1990.  There were no problems really. A few people were confused at first, but it all settled down fairly quickly. Prices didn't change, just the total of goods purchased is rounded up or down, to the nearest 5.

There's been a fair amount of speculation lately whether Australia will follow NZ and get rid of the 5 as well, but no action taken yet.  It will be a decision made by Treasury & Politicians, so I guess it'll take a few more years.

NZ stopped minting 1 & 2 coins in 1987, and minting of 5 ceased in 2004, and in 2006 they reduced the size of the 10, 20 & 50 coins.  $1 & $2 remained unchanged.

Fiji also pulled its old coins from circulation in 2009 as a way of pulling the 1 Cent (last struck in 2006) & 2 Cents (last struck in 2001) from circulation.Fiji still has a 5 Cents in circulation,but it is bigger than the old 5 Cents,& has a plain edge.The new 50 Cents is round with a milled edge,unlike the old 50 Cents.

Canada has already beaten the U.S.A. in doing away with the 1 Cent coin.

The very last 1 Cent coins were struck in early 2012.

They ceased to be legal tender early this year.
