On Monday, our pennies will become defunct and gradually taken out of circulation and melted down. You will still be able to spend them but you will not receive any as change. Prices will be rounded off to end in a 5 or 0.
Which made me wonder about the small denomination stamps. How would you buy a 1¢ stamp since technically if it is rounded down to a 0 then it would have no cost? I am tempted to head to the post office and try to buy one with a nickel just to see what happens.
Anyway, here we have the full set of small denomination stamps featuring beneficial insects that was started in 2007 and gradually added to over the past five years.
1¢ convergent lady beetle or ladybug (Hippodamia convergens)
2¢ monarch caterpillar (Danaus plexippus)
3¢ golden eyed lacewing (Chrysopa oculata)
4¢ paper wasp (Polistes fuscatus)
5¢ northern bumblebee (Bombus polaris)
6¢ assassin bug (Zelus luridus)
7¢ large milkweed bug (Oncopeltus fasciatus)
8¢ margined leatherwing (Chauliognathus marginatus)
9¢ dogbane beetle (Chrysochus auratus
10¢ Canada darner or dragonfly (Aeshna canadensis)
25¢ Crepopia moth (Hyalophora cecropia).
