Usage of 1 & 2 Cent coins in your country

Postby Muppetshow » Sat 30 Jun 2018, 15:17

Hi folks
I'm really interested in how cash payment works in countries wich have recently banned 1 & 2 Cent coins from circulation or at least don't produce new small Cent coins.
So if you are from Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Italy or the Netherlands - please tell me if these coins are still used

In Netherlands they are not used, prices are still in cents, only the final amount is rounded when you pay.
So on average it will not cost you anything extra, as long as we still have 5 cent coins.
In fact you can have some profit, when you see the final amount should be rounded upwards you can pay electronical.....

BE 1 and 2 cent are still accepted but it will chance the price will be rounded up to 5 or 10 so the 1 and 2 cent will disappear
