I've been going through my loose change, and I've come across 4 or 5 Canadian pennies. Why does Canadian change show up in my money, and do Canadians get some of our change? What do you think?
I got a Canadian Quarter as change once. Currency mixups are common I bet. But those pennies are being phased out in Canada, so you should hold on to them. =D
Yes, the opposite happens; I've rummaged through my change pot the other day and found something like 12 American cents.
Same. But I live in Canada, so...
But I have found money from the Caribbean in my pants once.
Isn't Canada getting rid of their pennies?
I have a few Canadian dimes. I don't get it, either. xD

Same situation over here. 50-50 chance it'll be gone. Either way, I've started up a penny collection. You know, for future reference when I tell my kids and grandkids about old money.
I miss the days when American change made me happy because I technically got more change than usual.
We really should get rid of pennies. Or let us melt them and sell the copper >.>
Yeah, pennies are really a waste of copper.
If we get rid of pennies, I'm holding onto mine. I have an assortment of pennies dating from 1919-1924 that're already worth more than your average penny.
