Hi Charles, welcome to the forum.

That was a fake news report on some silly news website.

Sydney, Australia

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

I remember a story about the pennies. The mint came right out and stated it cost more then a penny to make one. There was some discussion on doing away with them, but nothing has ever come of it.

Actually they are not going out of production, they are changing the metal composition they are made out of. 2013 nickels will not have any silver in them. Pennies will not have the current copper component percentage. It's similar to the coinage change (no pun intended) that occurred in 1965.
