    Very informative infographic. I never understood why we still made money that cost us more to produce than it’s face value? Does anyone even like pennies?

      Did you know that the government has been trying to shift to coins for dollar bills but the public is resisting it? It was save approximately $5.5 billion over thirty years. Personally, I LOVE those dollar coins.

      No, pennies really need to go. It is a classic example of government waste and their ability to not adapt to the changing world.

        I know that it makes sense to get rid of pennies, but it almost feels like admitting defeat to me.

    Wait, those bills are fabric! Sure feels like paper to me…lol
    There are also some interesting figures in there: 80% vs 78% debit and credit cards respectively…that might be encouraging till you see the figure for credit card debt…a whooping 800 billion!
    Like the insights

    I am surprised to see that the $1 bill lasts longer than the $5 or $10 bill. I would not have guessed that.
