On the NickleHere's something I bet you never thought of before ... If a nickel was born when I was (1962), and spent only once a week. It will have contributed over $100 to the economy by now. If someone threw the nickel into a jar and never spent it, it won't have even contributed a nickel to the economy. This is why we should stop making nickels. Although this one is pretty cool because it reminds the French of the bad decision they made.
In 1803, France sold us most of our country for a few baguettes.
