thousandth. >> mason: making money is more than just a figure of speech for the folks anna werner has been talking to. >> in this fast paced world obsessed with earning money and spending it, it is understandable why you might not take a minute to examine your space change. but if you did you might find those coins are miniature works of art. >> there is art in money? >> there is. >> not maybe money in art but there is art in money. >> that's a good comment. i like that. >> don everhart should know. he's the lead sculptor for the u.s. mint in philadelphia. >> people talk all the time about making money but you actually make money. >> right. >> you could say that.

6:21 am
indian head. >> so when did we get lincoln on our pennies? >> well, you have to fast forward to 1909 the 100th anniversary is coming up, teddy roosevelt is president so teddy roosevelt's idea was to honor think hero to get him on the penny. >> and lincoln has been there ever since. >> now if we could only give abe a penny for his thoughts. >> i can imagine, i don't want my face on this worthless coin. >> it is an argument that has grown loud never recent years. >> fueled in part by people like jeff glor who say retire the penny already. >> millions of pennies are made every year by the mint so they have a one-way trip from the 90 to the stores into our pockets and then into some jar as home. >> what do you buy with a penny these days? >> nothing. and how much time do we waste fishing around in our pockets and our purses and our wallets for pennies? >> oh, found one. >> the penny is so easy for us to do away with it but other
6:22 am
countries have done this. >> canada. >> that's right most recently canada retired their penny and there were no earthquakes, their economy is doing fine. >> that's right. three years ago canada said good-bye to the penny joining a dozen countries that have thrown their smallest coins into the smelter. >> is it possible for there to be zero in the solenoid. >> how do you make change the canadian way. >> gore is a fisks professor at mit and math is not my strong suit so i had him crunch the numbers. >> if event is zero to give you don't have to do anything because it is right at a nickel. >> yes. >> but if it ends in a one or a two, then you go down. >> to the zero. >> to the zero. >> hey that's good. >> three four, goes up to the five so if you run through it it is half the time it goes up and half the time it goes up. >> they abhor the idea of rounding americans. >> they want the penny saved. >> this is no evidence at all if you didn't have the penny they would round down and the

7:23 am
do this. well, this morning, we are going to give you three things that you are never ever to do when it comes to your money. first, you are never, ever to co-sign a loan. don't you think if someone needs you to co-sign a loan what that means is that the financial institution isn't going to give them a loan because they don't qualify. they don't qualify why are you doing this? when you co-sign a loan, it is your loan. you are personally responsible for it. and if the person who's supposed to be making payments on it isn't making payments, you are not going to know. it will ruin your credit score. so under no circumstances you are ever to co-sign a loan. do, do you hear me? >> next, you are never ever to take a loan from your 401-k. 401-ks are protected against bankruptcy. if you are doing so much and you are in so much debt you have to take a loan from a 401-k, that means you are close to
7:24 am
bankruptcy. you may end up having to claim bankruptcy and your money would have been protected in the 401-k, so you are never, ever to do that. >> and last, but not least, student loans. student loans are the most dangerous loans out there. they can be discharged in bankruptcy. so you're never to miss a payment of a student loan. it is your number one priority. never miss a student loan payment! >> and really, when you sum it all up, just don't do anything that you don't understand. and that will keep you out of trouble. >> >> mason: advice from suze orman, now to bob schieffer in washington for a look at what is ahead on face the nation, good morning, bob, you made some headlines, this week, congratulations. >> well i am indeed going to retire this summer and today on "face the nation" i am going to answer the burning question, who is going to take my place? then we will talk about the real news with secretary of state john kerry. >> we will be watching, bob
