The British Penny - European Union Directive No. 456179

In order to bring about further integration with the single European currency, the Euro, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase “Spending a Penny” is not to be used after 31 December 2014.

From this date onwards, the correct term will be:

“Euronating”.



It is hoped that this will be a great relief to everyone.

Why don't your governments just dispense with the penny like Canada just did? A penny for your thoughts.

wave.gif hug.gif I've always had a lot of pennies that I've just never had the time to count and package and take to the bank, so maybe I should look through them for the last minted date, that being 2012 and older ones.

I wish someone had saved a bag full of pre-war Finnish Markka coins for me drool.gif

When the markka was introduced (1860 by the Bank of Finland), coins were minted in copper (1, 5 and 10 penniä), silver (25 and 50 penniä, 1 and 2 markkaa) and gold (10 and 20 markkaa).

Not to mention the automatic price increase on everything. $1.99 automatically becomes $2.00. It doesn't seem like much, but it adds up.
