Makes No Cents To Me

The last time the design of the penny was change was 1959 when the Lincoln Memorial was put on the back. Next year the reverse side will feature four new designs: the log cabin of his childhood, Lincoln sitting on his butt on a log reading a book, him unproportionally next to the Illinois Capitol building and a drawing of the U.S. Capitol with a big hole in its dome.

To be succinct, we should just do away with the penny.

And before you get your knickers in a dither, yes it will have "In God We Trust" engraved on it. Somewhere. Just as the dollar coin has it, but most likely not in the same location.
