WOW! It is currently Consecutive Day #915 of Penny Finding. Half of January 2020 is over and I have just now totaled the 2019 coin data. 2019 brought another 365 days of finding coins EVERY DAY. It certainly was NOT easy with Doc’s two knee replacement surgeries, a week on a riverboat, and various other things happening. As usual, there were numerous funny and touching stories throughout the year.
Here is a summary of the 2019 data. We found:
1818 Pennies, 121 Nickels, 395 Dimes and 124 Quarters plus some other currency. There were 2458 basic U.S. coins. The value of the U.S. currency totaled $98.51
There were 21 Hits for the Cycle.
There was some paper currency, a Silver Quarter, as well as 33 additional coins including ones from Bermuda, Columbia, New Zealand, Japan, Belgium, Mexico, China, Canada, Korea, and Thailand.
Since I first threw out the Penny Challenge to the Universe in December of 2008, I have found more than 31,000 coins worth over $1,400.
Doc and I have two domestic and two international trips planned for 2020. It could be a bit challenging to find pennies in countries which don’t use pennies.
Wishing you a Happy, Penny Finding 2020.
