My two cents … Make it two cents

On 60 minutes this week, they had a section that discussed the need for the penny. In this segment they explained that it cost nearly double want it is worth to make the penny and nickel. But to get rid of the penny would have an adverse effect to the economy because everything would need to be rounded up to the nearest nickel. My two cent are to make the penny worth what it cost two cents and get rid of the nickel. That way you are getting rid of both coins that cost more than they are worth but only need to round up a single cent. Your thoughts?
