“Did you hear about the coin shortage? Apparently, America is literally out of common cents”

The 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic resulted in a coin shortage in the United States. “The recent coin shortage shows us that we’re all ‘Missing common cents?’”—a pun on “common sense”—was posted on Twitter by Joelle Beebe on July 16, 2020.

Coins
A shortage of coins was also reported around the United States as the circulation of coins came to a halt. The normal circulation of coins through banks, business, and consumers was interrupted at every step. The lockdown closed both banks and business. And consumers shied away from the use of cash when health warnings from the WHO, NIH, and CDC indicated that the use of cash and coin could spread the virus. Therefore, coins stopped moving throughout the economy. The shortage was further exacerbated when the United States Department of the Treasury authorized the minting of fewer coins earlier in the year to protect workers during the pandemic.

What’s bad is I typed this out, and saw someone beat me by two hours.
A day late and a dollar short.
