I received a reply from the RCM regarding the penny's future as NCLT.  Read it here:

Who knows what they will decide to do...

Pennies are certainly not part of the 2013 sets. Take a look

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

NOOO!!     >:(     Maybe the RCM changed their mind since I spoke to them.  I find it odd that they continue minting extremely limited runs of circulation strike 50 cent coins but will not do so with the penny...

It is possible to buy 50 of the last million pennies for $10+shipping +GST in a nicely gift wrapped package. Quantities limited to 20,000 rolls of 50. Now only if they numbered the pennies I would by the last one and only if they had serial numbers I would buy the one that said 999999 but then who knows 1000000 would be a better investment ;)

I picked up a roll of these last 20000 rolls. The shipping is steep though....$10 for the roll and $8 for shipping.

It is actually a lie since at least the last 2 pennies were donated to the Currency Museum and the ANA.  So they are advertising the last 1000000 pennies made.

If you noticed on *that* site, the last roll with serial number 20,000/20,000 is fetching, wait for it...

$3,350!  ???

Good Lord! For a roll of 50 pennies? You can buy a quite decent 1935 $25 note for that kind of scratch!

Then again the person who bought it probably already has a  low serial  number 1935 $25 note with a similar serial numbered $500 note (both French version)  :o.

I have often wondered where I would draw the line. Would I pay a ridiculous price for a torn $25 1935 note or would I be satisfied with a decent digital image of a UNC one that I can admire whenever I want and at higher levels of magnification ;).

Would I pay a 30% premium for a graded note held up in plastic or pay lesser for one of similar quality that I can touch and feel. Again if all that I care about is appearance can I not just be as happy with a high quality digital image :)

I am sure everyone thinks differently which makes collecting fun and sometimes results in decent financial gain. Thank goodness for e-bay, the dealer community and other markets for making all this possible.

For 6600$ I would take a regular penny roll and ask someone to fake the wrap... would cost me less lol !

This got more attention as it made it to CTV News in Toronto a few days before the end of the auction.
