Sadly today we acknowledge the passing of Penny. (1858 – 2013)
I have fond memories of Penny – at the candy store, the summer fair, bingo.
In Canada, a Penny is a coin worth one cent, or 1⁄100 of a dollar and as of today the Royal Canadian Mint stops distributing pennies to banks and retailers.
Up until 1996 the Penny was composed of ~98% copper thus giving the coin its name ‘Copper’.
Although the Penny has become discontinued currency, copper will still be visible in home décor.
The Copper Shade by Tom Dixon is a bright and shiny way to light a room.

So….‘Penny for your thoughts” if you see a Penny on the street now will you stop to pick it up?
