Time to replace the coinage

The lowest value Australian Coins are now currently worth as much in metal as their face value. It now cost the government more to make and distribute than they are worth.
It is time that the five cent coin is withdrawn and the 10 cent, 20 cent and 50 cent coins redesigned to be smaller and made of cheaper metals. That is of course if the government wants to cut costs.
