Woah! How impressive is this Penny Floor idea as seen over at Revolver? More to the point how painstakingly long would it have taken to lay them all? I'm one of those people who loves counting coins. My Father-in-law has a HUMONGOUS whiskey bottle that is full of shrapnel and everytime I visit I vow to spend a few hours counting and bagging it all up for him...for a small share obviously :) Even I though, have to admit that floor would be one challenging task!
Apparently the floor is made up of over 340, 000 coins with the oldest penny dating back to 1908. All together the pennies weigh approx 2,000 lbs! IN-SANE, Ha!
