A Penny for Your Thoughts, and
1.4 Cents for the Penny
By FLOYD NORRIS, The New York Times

(April 22) - What happens if a penny
is worth more than 1 cent?

That is an issue the United States Mint could soon face if the price of metals keeps rising. Already it costs the mint well more than a cent to make a penny.  Last year, the U.S. Mint made 7.7 billion pennies -- more than the number of all the other coins it produced.
