The Great Lucky Penny Search!


My mother started me a coin collection when I was young, we collected US coins and a few foreign (our definition of Foreign at the time was Mexico and Canada.) Since I have grown older it has grown to encompass many countries and more than just coins. I always loved how a currency can tell you so much about a country, and how they are works of art within themselves. However unlike some, I never placed any superstition or “luck” to a particular coin, until last year. On 26-March-2009 when I was in the UK, I received a random 1 penny, and I decided that it was lucky, and this penny never left my sight. Well that is until today, when at some point I lost my lucky penny. I am unsure of how or where, but I do know that it is gone, so I am on the lookout for a new lucky penny. Now I could raid my coin collection or use a US penny, but that would not be the same… I don’t feel that any of those could be my new lucky penny…. So I am reaching out to the world for help. If you would like to send me a new lucky penny, just let me know I will get you my address…. I am also willing to send one in return if you like…

I purchased all of the state coins for my nephews. Made for a great Christmas present for 10 years.

My husband and I collect currencies when we travel. I might have a lucky pfenning for you.

Such a sad story about losing a lucky penny! But think about it - how lucky could it be if it got itself lost? Maybe you're lucky to lose it?

I've found lots of yucky pennies but no lucky ones. ;-)

My eye was immediately drawn to the bright pink Aussie 5 dollar note in that shot.
