Its big brother wanting the banks to know all your transactions. If there is a coin shortage, its deliberate. Its all about control.

There never was a coin shortage 😂. It’s all about getting rid of money and complete dependence on your bank card, for the Governments Cashless System. Eventually the Government will Control how much you get , and what you can buy. It’s called SOCIALISM. The Communist Government will have complete control of everything. It’s the NEW WORLD ORDER.

common sense, if electronic transactions are majority of payments, what does this have to do with coins? I use my debit, I don't get coins back to hoard. something not sounding right.
