>>8256362 Oh, the same happened with the BRL penny a few years ago. It was pretty useless, but I liked them. Once I managed to get almost 300 of them, but I only have like 30 now.

>>8256400 Not really, no. Inflation will do that to all minted coins. The same is true for the US (2 USC for 1, for us it's 1.6 CAC for 1).

>>8256554 the central bank controls the money faggot. how are coins any less fictional than digital 1s and 0s? money isnt a commodity and it isnt a medium of exchange; it's just tickets, except rather than giving you command over a plane ride or a move you get command over the economy's production now back to /paul/ with you faggot

29 min later 8256670 Anonymous
>>8256606 that's my point. those tickets are supposed to represent ownership over a valuable think that used to serve as an exchange element for trade. Entire economies have been ruined over the fact that banks or governments start printing "tickets", counterfeit it's dangerous for that reason. with no cash who is in control of how many money does the bank have available for loans? the thing is that currently the banks are able to lend more money than they actually posses and in my humble opinion getting rid of coinage and cash would allow them to practice that bullshit even further.

Our 25 and 50 satang (1/4 and 1/2 baht) coins are still in circulation but most places simply don't accept them anymore. We don't miss them. Just think of the elimination of your one cent as the first step towards the elimination of all cents.

It costs more than 1 yen to produce 1 yen coin here too, but it feels strange for me to get rid of it all together. That's probably because Japan is still a cash society. If you shop in Indonesia, sometimes you get candies instead of coins for rp 500 or less.

Im glad i got a canadian penny then. The value will skyrocket. We all know that the american penny might be leaving soon, but what i do is collectect american copper pennies from 1982 below. Ive been doing it for years now. Some 1982s are zinc, but those are rare, so i keep them too. I prolly have like 10 dollars worth by now, and im going to save them for like 40 or 50 years, then ima sell them individually. Even if they only go for like one dollar, ima get like 50000 dollars because il have around that many. Just one of those things that might be able to pay out, like collecting cards.

>>8257944 I saw this when I was up there recently. Everybody I talked to thought it was weird because Harper apparently has some sort of fixation on turning the war into Canada's Sekigahara. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4i_ qe9W6Dk I got to thinking about cost for all the events and advertisement planned compared to the amount of money we spent on the anniversary down here. See, I had always thought the events of the Seven Years War to be much more pivotal in Canadian national history.
