Quote from: brandm24 on August 10, 2020, 03:12:28 PMI'd earlier come across an interesting story about the mint's attempt to increase production in response to the extreme shortages. They partnered with General Motors in the development of what was known as a roller press. The new equipment could supposedly produce an astounding 10,000 cent coins per minute. The experiment with the new technology never came to fruition though as too many technical issues were encountered. I think they focused only on increasing cent production because the cent shortage was the most severe.
