    just make a cash withdraw of $5.00 at the bank which you have account with, ask the teller to give you in one cent denomination.

    most unlikely. unless one knows the bank mgr personally and ask for a favour. banks have instruction from mas to collect such 1 ct from circulation. mas has stopped production of it, although still legal tender.

    Hi, sorry that I didn't mention - have walked into a few bank branches, called the hotlines and even tried money changers... no luck. 1 bank told me they are 'short' of 1 cent, a few just have a few pcs in their counters. Thanks to all who feedback.

    This one face value was US$1.
    99.9% silver.
    Now the melt value of that silver is US$29.34.

    Coin is worth much more than the metal.

    The Art In Transit for this station is The Coin Mat by Jane Lee. It consists of a mural consisting of 160,000 one-cent coins embedded in glass.
