Will the penny disappear from common currency?

At YouWager.com, you can bet on it. Betting on the fate of the one-cent coin could even win you a lot of dollars.

As much as we revere Honest Abe, one member of Congress is proposing that we abolish it. Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) is currently writing a bill that would retire the coin. It could be the right time to truly save our pennies. Why? Well, for one thing, pennies cost a lot to make. 1.23 cents, to be exact.

Patriotism is not always a practical issue. About 10 years ago, Kolbe tried to push Congress into putting the penny out to pasture. But he found many lawmakers were actually very reluctant to mandate changes to even the smallest change within the nation’s currency. It could still be a losing effort.

So, will the U.S. abolish the penny?

At 8 to one, a bet on “yes” could make a lot of cents. “We offer action on all the major sports,” says Freddy Harris, General Manager of popular online sportsbook YouWager.com. “We also offer things that are a little bit different to make the experience fun for our sports betting customers.” YouWager.com’s offbeat bets range from wagers on Cindy Sheehan’s hunger strike to a drop in the Dow Jones Index.
