JILL McIntyre, of Victoria Park, wrote about the use by supermarkets advertising products where the amounts may include 93 or 99 cents and so on.
The question is asked as to why the supermarkets are allowed to advertise like that if the one and two-cent coins are not legal tender.
Unfortunately, even though as Jill states the ones and twos are not in circulation any more, according to the Reserve Bank website they are still legal tender. Therefore, we are stuck with the situation of not having any of those coins to use.
It is still legal for bills, advertisements and so forth to advertise the way they do.
As to the question of the fivecent coin and advertising, well I guess we will have to wait and see firstly if the five-cent coin is removed from circulation and then, if it is left as legal tender, just not in circulation or if it is actually declared not legal tender. MARGARET ANNE RYAN, Ballajura.
