Thought of the Day - Coinage

75802-508694-thumbnail.jpgFinally took a big pile of change to the bank the other day.  They've installed one of those coin counters...and unlike the ones in the grocery store they don't charge anything.  (7.5% fee is a BIT ridiculous...of course, I'd like to be on the receiving end of that).

So, the Bank's machine plowed through thousands of coins making the noise of a heavy summer rain (ok, slightly more 'metallic' than that) coupled with robotic conveyor belts.  Really quite pleasant.

I had over $10 in pennies.  That's a lot of pennies.  Pennies by the way cost more than one cent to produce.  And pre-1982 coins have over $.02 worth of copper in them.  Start hoarding them...you can melt them down and sell the copper.  Article

Sure beats the people killing themselves trying to steal power lines for the copper.
