Find a penny, pick it up!
May 23, 2019

Find a penny, pick it up!

“Find a penny, pick it up…..All day long you will have good luck.” We have all heard this a time or two!  Finding a penny is considered good luck because years ago, people thought that finding metal was a gift from the gods and meant to protect you from evil.***

 

Did you know the penny was the first coin ever minted in the US and nearly 13 billion pennies are minted annually?* It is said that the average penny lasts about 25 years.  The United States government reported an estimated 16 million pennies are lost each year. ** Wow! Now that’s a lot of pennies! There are millions of pennies waiting for you to pick up, bring you luck and save.

 

May 23, 2019 is National Lucky Penny Day.  Get out and find those lucky pennies. And when you do, Queensborough will be here to help you protect and grow your lucky pennies.

 

Whether you start with saving your lucky pennies in a jar or piggy bank, every penny counts.  Pennies equals dollars, dollars equal saving.  Saving equals financial stewardship.  See a penny, pick it up…..
