And you know there must be something fundamentally wrong with a government that can't make money even when they quite literally own the mint. As of 2006 it cost the government 1.75 cents to make each one cent coin and 7 cents to make each 5 cent nickel coin.

There is a good way to know when it's time to stop making a coin, if you place one on the sidewalk in a busy city and nobody bothers to pick it up then stop making it.
