Stop minting 1p and 2p copper coins

Additional Information

There is virtually nothing which can be purchased for two pence, let alone one penny!

Minting these coins cannot be cost effective and many people simply throw these coins away.

The UK has eight coins (nine if you include the £5) getting rid of the 1p and 2p would mean less loose change in our pockets.
