We recently inherited a collection, so this isn't news to me - it's been all over the coin world for the past few months.

Didn't see a thread on this so I figured I'd ask.

Anyone else seeing signs at their local stores asking you to pay with credit/debit cards or exact change due to a national coin shortage?
Yep, I've seen that. Coin shortages are nothing new - they crop up from time to time.

I have a gallon plastic jug I usually fill then cash in for a quick $500+. Takes a while. Not very much in it now as I use less and less cash these days, pre-COVID included.

Yes. Several stores I’ve been at here in MN have signs at the register claiming a coin shortage.

My local pharmacy will not accept cash anymore. They require you to use a card. When I pressed them on this, they said it was due to virus fears. :rolleyes:
How stupid - especially for a pharmacy - as plastic is better able to host a virus or bacteria compared to metal or a paper dollar. The CDC has publications addressing this fact.
