I’ve no idea how it would work in Ireland but I do know that in Holland the prices in the shop are not rounded up or down to the nearest five cents. The rounding doesn’t happen until all items are added up on check out and then the total will be to the nearest five cents, which means you win as often as you lose up. I’m all for it.

A new pilot project in an Irish town will see the coins being taken out of use. Do you think it should go national?

    This is how it works in Finland as well. You win some, you lose some – unless you’re paying by card, then it’s always the exact sum.
