No pennies, but quarters are very tempting.  It is hard for me to pick them up.

I used to always pick up anything I found. But now, I usually just kick pennies, if its anything else I will pick it up.

For me, it does not matter what type of coin it is.  We all know from this site that 'a penny saved is a penny earned'  and eventually it adds up to $25.00.  Cash me out please...

I usually will pick up any coin as long as there is not a lot of people around close by! I guese i should not worry about what the next person behind me is thinking, when they see me pick up that dime, because they may pick it up themselves!

I hardly ever see any kind of money at all on the street... but I'd pick up anything I guess... and I too miss penny candy, I'm younger though so I'd bet your penny candies were better.  I only remember flavored tootsie rolls, and them really hard PAL bubble gums ever being a penny.

I will bend down and pick up a penny, it may take a while so that I can get a cup of coffee, but they do add up!  I am amazed at how many people just throw them away.  Our bank will count them for you (free) and deposit the money or give you the cash.  I am surprised that most banks don't want the coins wrapped, they want to count the money.

are you doing email offers on fusioncash? That's like picking 2 pennies of the street...does it really make a difference? Yes, in 365 days you will have about $7 :BangHead:

Money is money ... no shame in my game I would pick them all up.
As far as the germs, from picking up a coin, statement doesn't make sense.
Think about all the handling the coins in the cash register or bank for that matter.
They are not sterile.
Free standing money out in the elements is probably cleaner than the ones that are
handled all over the place ...
