Where did all of the money go?
If you’ve been road tripping recently… or gone to pick up a quick bite at a fast food restaurant, you’ve likely seen the “Coin Shortage” signs. They say something along the lines of
“Coin Shortage. Due to COVID-19 there is a nationwide coin shortage. Please use exact change or credit card if possible as we may be unable to provide exact change.”
We’ve had toilet paper shortages, flour shortages, yeast shortages, meat shortages, Dr. Pepper shortages, … and coin shortages.
Don’t worry. The money is still there. It’s just not there. Make sense?
