National One Cent Day 2016

National One Cent Day is celebrated on April 1, every year.  A cent is one hundredth of a dollar. It was designed and minted first in the year 1909. It took four years to design and issue the first prototypes of the coin. But what is the significance of one cent day. One cent is a very small denomination today. Its value has diminished. Nonetheless, the coin has its own charm.

On National One cent Day, one can revisit its history and other aspects that made it possible. One can realize the power of one cent by understanding how one can save a cent every day on purchases made. Most stores display price tags of items as $9.99. Try saving that one cent in a piggy bank. It can accumulate over a long time and come handy when you need some instant cash.

On National One Cent Day you can celebrate the power of a cent by having popcorn for one cent, buying a candy for one cent, giving one cent to a needy and just putting aside one cent in your piggy bank for the day. May be you could also resolve to continue putting all the one cents you generate per day into a coin bank.
