Penny (United States coin)

The United States one-cent coin, commonly known as a penny, is a unit of currency equaling one one-hundredth of a United States dollar. The cent’s symbol is ¢. Its obverse has featured the profile of President Abraham Lincoln since 1909, the centennial of his birth. From 1959 (the sesquicentennial of Lincoln’s birth) to 2008, the reverse featured the Lincoln Memorial. Four different reverse designs in 2009 honored Lincoln’s 200th birthday and a new, permanent reverse – the Union Shield – was introduced in 2010. The coin is 0.75 inches (19.05 mm) in diameter and 0.061 inches (1.55 mm) in thickness.

The U.S. Mint’s official name for a penny is “cent”[2] and the U.S. Treasury’s official name is “one cent piece”.[3] The colloquial term “penny” derives from the British coin of the same name; with pennies being the plural, other plural forms pence and pee (standard use in British English) is rarely, if ever, used.

As of 2010, it cost the U.S. Mint 1.79 cents to make a cent because of the cost of materials and production.[4]

The Moral Of The Story

It’s just some words and pictures on a computer/smartphone screen, and they only mean what we each decide to make them mean, and in this case, they are “words with ends” that justify the means of a different perspective to consider.
