Pennies may be lucky but they are being shown the door in Canada.
As of today, the Royal Canadian Mint is no longer distributing the copper-colored coins.
One cashier says she's pleased with the change.
The penny is being retired because it costs one-point-six cents to produce.
Government officials believe they can save 11 million dollars a year by getting rid of the coins.
Even though they are no longer being distributed, pennies can still be used for purchases or exchanged at banks.
