Or we could just add add more copper to the penny giving it back it's value... while we are doing that we could add silver back into nickels, dimes and quarters, then we could get rid of our terrible paper currency and use gold coinage.

The reason they want to stop the production of the penny(Congress, not Obama) is because it costs more than it is worth.

you're right about using more coin money, it lasts a lot longer than paper money
so we wouldn't be making as much of it......like in canada

adding actual copper makes them more expensive actually, they would have to make pennys out of steel to make the cheep enough to not lose money.

plus we dont need pennys or nickels anyway, they are useless

The life of that coin will be far more than one use.
