Com­mon cents would make a change

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western opinion -

THE one cent and two cent coins have been out of cir­cu­la­tion for a num­ber of years, yet the su­per­mar­kets still ad­ver­tise some items at $1.93, $2.99 and so forth.

If the one and two cent coins are no longer le­gal ten­der, then why are su­per­mar­kets per­mit­ted to ad­ver­tise as such, or can I de­mand my change?

It will be very in­ter­est­ing to see what prices are ad­ver­tised when the five cent piece is scrapped. Jill McIn­tyre, Vic­to­ria Park.
