Default US Mint: No 1/3 Dollar coin?

With so many prices ending in a ".99", it would almost be beneficial to have a 1/3 dollar coin. We have a 1/2 and a 1/4, may as well have 1/3 too. Could have president donald trump on the face too, and a twitter symbol on the backside. Or someone else, idk. Why isnt the USA already minting these coins?

While I like where your head is at, I don’t think we need more coins as we move to more cashless transactions. Also not sure I’d put trump on a coin yet if we did create a new denomination. Seems like it would be very controversial.

It wouldn't make things easier.

We use a 10 base numbering system.

The ending in .99 is just a marketing trick to make consumers think they are purchasing at a lower price bracket.

A 33 cent coin might help if you buy somethng at exactly 99 cents. But 1.99 or 2.99, you will have to dig out your other coins.

Better idea:

Price things to end in 5 or 0. (With or without tax)

Get rid of pennies.

It really does need to happen, ever since it was more expensive to produce a penny than its worth.

I have heard people say this many times, suggesting that pennies aren't worth making. But pennies aren't single use items. The average penny lasts decades and is used thousands of times. The logic of your statement is like saying that a DVD might cost $4 to make and since redbox is renting them for $2 they are losing money. Namsayin?
