Hurry ! It's National Lucky Penny Day

Why hurry? The penny may be an endangered species. Countries, including the U.S. are considering abadoning the penny as it apparently costs more to make than it's worth. As the saying goes, "see a penny, pick it up. It brings you luck". Do any of you still stop and pick up a penny when you see one on the ground? What about a dime? What's your threshold for stopping and picking up an abandoned coin?

It's also the first National Cooler Day. I'm sure I don't have to tell you what to do to celebrate this new national day. Friday before Memorial Day is now meant for "fiesta" !

    If I see a penny on the ground, I pick it up for sure. I do think twice if tails is showing though, because I heard once that you only get good luck if heads is up

    I've heard that too.

    National Cooler Day refers to the cold storage container that are oft used by outdoorsy types.

    As to Lucky Penny Day, I have passed a penny w/o picking it up. Threshold is a nickel (shiny. silvery, meant something when I was young), although I gave my wife a hard time recently when she picked one up. "I thought it was a quarter."

    If you had a 1943 S copper Lincoln-Wheat penny but didn't know it's worth close to 200K and spent it, was it a lucky penny ?

    I’d rather not know if I did that!
