I am well over one hundred years old, yet I still recall the day of my birth.

In the summer of 1909 America honored her favorite president, and San Francisco celebrated famously. Fate would forever link me to this legendary man, his humble beginning would secure my place in history as well.

There are no others like me. I’m the first of my kind. Many had come before, and so many since that you couldn’t count them all in a lifetime. Sure, I resemble the others, but there is something special that stands out from all the rest.

You see, I am a penny. My name is not Penny. Rather, I am a penny. You know, the small humble copper coin you see on the pavement. “Find a penny pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck,” and all that stuff.
