    Hey ya'all , Starting in late 2021, the US Government will begin “Pennies for Freedom,” a penny reclamation campaign designed to collect the estimated 23 trillion unused pennies sitting in people’s homes and coin jars. The pennies will then be melted and the copper will be used for green energy projects throughout the US.
    I can't believe no one did a thread about this or did I miss something . :jawdrop:. Follow link pleeeeese .... Tell me what you think , you dooo think don't you ? :smuggrin::hilarious::hilarious:
    I think this sucks , I mean how can they just discontinue producing this Iconic and historical treasure . What does everyone think will happen ?

    Not clicking a link to some weird website to an article from 2019. That said if they really were going to actually stop production (which they aren't as of now) don't you think there would be articles all over numismatic sites and magazines and not just a single old link from an obscure site?

    It‘s just a blog, nothing wrong with the site.

    I think it’s a bit early for April fools‘ day jokes. If you read carefully, that‘s what the blog was about...

    e.g. „you will be hard-pressed to find stores willing to accept them after April 1, 2022“

    Either way it's just old speculation that for whatever reason was presented as factual information that could confuse a lot of people thinking this is really going to happen when it isn't.

    The article states that it is a hoax for April Fools Day.

    I think there was another thread about this ~ 2 months ago.

    This "article" has been popping up from time to time on coin forums ever since it first came out back in 2019. Seems like every few months someone "rediscovers" it.
