2012 France 1 Euro Cent

Yes one cent coins are still being made outside the U.S. even if they are said to be rarely needed. Most retailers round off the price of things and it is an unspoken rule not to use 1 or 2 euro cents. Retailers purposely price things so every purchase rounds up and for large retailers that is millions in free profits.

Of course the end of small change will eventually happen but that will also boost the use of credit/debit cards that takes exact change.

Coin quality is weak except for the date and mint marks, I can only assume the dies are not being changed often to save on production cost.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Euro Cent / France
Year: 2012
Mintage: 358,566,000
Metal: Copper Plated Steel: 94.35% Steel 5.65% Copper
Value: $0.05 in F
