1943 Steel US Penny The 1943 silver-colored penny was a special wartime issue made of steel and coated with zinc. During the Second World War copper was badly needed to make shell casings. In response to the wartime demand for copper, pennies that year were made of steel. They are not great rarities, though. These coins are generally worth about 12 to 15 cents apiece in circulated condition, and as much as 50 cents or more if uncirculated.

American Half Cents Nobody here is old enough to remember these coins being circulated--half cents! American half cents were minted from 1797 through 1857. They were discontinued when it became obvious that not much could be bought with half a cent. Today the penny has little purchasing power and will likely meet the same fate.

Canadian 25 Cent Banknote Canada once had 25-cent paper money. This is an example. Known commonly as 'shinplasters,' they were discontinued in the early 1930s. Shinplasters can still be bought relatively cheaply from coin and banknote dealers.

Canadian Dollar Bills Most Canadians born after 1986 probably wouldn't recognize this bit of history: a one-dollar bill. Citing the high cost of paper money (an average bank note stays in circulation just 14 months before it has to be replaced), the Bank of Canada ceased production of the green bills in 1986. They were replaced by the much more durable $1 coins, commonly known as loonies because a loon is featured on them, that same year.

In The Year 2525  Zager and Evans In the Year 2525" hit number one on the pop charts in 1969. It claimed the #1 spot for six weeks, a remarkable achievement. It also topped the charts in the UK. Coincidentally, it was number one on July 20, 1969 in the USA, the date of the first manned moon landing by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. It was nominated for a special Hugo Award that same year.

Susan B Anthony Dollar This coin didn't flip--it flopped! With great fanfare in 1979, the United States Treasury Department minted millions of $1 coins featuring a portrait of suffragette Susan B. Anthony on the obverse. Americans were used to dealing with dollar bills--which were still being produced--so the coins were largely shunned. Moreover, their size made them easily confused with quarters. The dollar was minted again in 1980 with little success. In 1981 it was minted solely for collectors' sets. The Susan B. Anthony dollar was reissued in 1999 to meet the demand of vending machines that required dollar coins for change, but they are still generally detested by the public.

The Automat Automats were a type of make your own meal cafeteria. Customers bought individual items by placing coins into slots next to the food you wanted. The coins unlocked a glass lid and you helped yourself. Automats were all the rage for a while especially during the 1950s.

Franklin Half Dollar From 1948 through 1963, some 510 million American half dollars bearing the portrait of Benjamin Franklin were minted. They were replaced by Kennedy half dollars in 1964. I've never understood why half dollars fell out of favor as an everyday currency. To me they seem at least as practical as quarters.

Canadian Two-Dollar Bill The Bank of Canada stopped printing these in 1997. They were replaced by two-tone two-dollar coins commonly called 'toonies.'
