Bank hides 100 lucky pennies across USA

It's easy to ignore a coin lying on the ground, especially if it's a small one like a penny.

But, if you're in America, think again when you're out and about because you could be walking past a small fortune.

Ally Bank have announced that they've hidden 100 pennies worth $1,000 each in 10 cities across the United States!

The pennies are located in public places in: Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Austin, Chicago, Charlotte, Detroit, Miami, New York and Washington, D.C.

Those who are lucky enough to find them need to make their way to the website allyluckypenny.com to verify the code they've placed on the back.

But why is this company just giving away money? According to them, some 10 billion pennies are minted each year, but nearly half of them go out of circulation.

The company is keen to remind people that every cent is worth saving.

So if you're in the States and pounding the pavement in any of the above cities make sure you keep your eyes open for those shiny coins!
