Life in the time of Septimius Severus on Flickr.
Stripped of most of it’s copper in 1997 the penny has been discontinued by Emperor Severus, er Prime Minister Harper and, it’s big brother’s the Loonie and Toonie have now been debased to but a shadow of their former selves as well, requiring the recalibration of every vending machine in the country.
This enterprising penny* isn’t taking things lying down, gathering up his brethren to mount an all out counter-attack against the indignities being inflicted on Canadian Coinage.
*Actually, he was gathering donations for three very worthy charities as part of the Penny Party. You might as well give them your pennies, darn things have hardly any copper in them anymore.
