Since we've just discontinued the penny in Canada, I thought I would be so very efficient and get rid of the little bowl of pennies that we have accumulated. We took it to the coinstar at the grocery store. Auggie picked 10 pennies to keep, this is one of them.  

The next day, we found a good activity online that uses pennies (Auggie's been home sick from school so we've been doing activities at home). Ah well, there are always the exotic American ones. This penny is about as old as me!
