Is it time to ditch the penny?

Is it time to ditch the penny?

At the beginning of the month, the Canadian government stopped minting the one cent piece, as they’re no longer worth enough to be useful. Should we be following suit with our own copper coins?

Which of these is closest to your view?


Ditch the 1p 2,179 votes (11 %)
Ditch the 1p & 2p 4,811 votes (24 %)
Ditch the 1p, 2p & 5p 2,019 votes (10 %)
Don’t ditch anything 11,149 votes (55 %)

                   20,158 votes received.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
