Found 15 Coins Today Including a Panama Coin and 1957 Penny

Today I walked to the grocery store and on the way I found 2 coins in the street at separate spots:

  • a copper-looking coin from Panama (looks like a penny but I'm not sure how much it's worth)
  • a penny

Then I found a penny in front of a vending machine outside the store, and inside the store I found a handful of coins in the change tray of a coin machine. One of them was 2 pennies stuck together. It's like a penny sandwich.

Then as I was checking out I found another penny on the floor. It was the 1957 wheat penny. Yay! 

That makes 50 cents I found today plus the Panama coin I'm not counting in my found money total.
