Thanks for the link!

I threw five or six cents in the trash the other day. I'll give you one guess what they were and why.

Interesting, however:
"fact" 25 is not completely correct as MANY U.S. coins still in circulation do not have the "P" mintmark;
"fact" 26 refers to the penny which is not a U.S.
denomination since we use the cent instead.

Penny is the US denomination. Go look at the specifications of proof or uc sets on the official mint site. They call it a penny..

"Fact" 23 is wrong. The US did NOT make 16 Trillion coins in 2016, more like 16 Billion.

Just because they call it so doesn't make it so and if that were to be the official terminology then Congress should legislate the change and the Mint can strike new dies with the CENT removed and PENNY added.
