In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.

Summary of 2019

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.
