Image of an upright red marble gravestone marker. "PENNY" is written on top of it in bold brass letters. On the left, a symbolic image of a coin (a golden circle), on the right, the following eulogy, written in yellow Gothic letters:

Penny, penny
T'were so many
Cost a lot

Came to naught

At least now there's a place where we can leave the flowers for this wake...

So you will also regret the loss of this coin?

Awwww. . . But I don't want them to die! I like the granite, though.

Thank you!

Yes, the U.S. (and UK) pennies a worth much more than our (now absolete) 1 kopeek coins. So is the dollar. It is actually hard to believe that the dollar will be withdrawn any time soon.

Cool plug-in. Very apt epigraph.

Thank you. I spent a while choosing the right site, and felt uncomfortable, because I was "playing around" with what people used in difficult circumstances.

Well, I can't speak for everyone, but I just helped my siblings pick out a gravestone for our mother, and I wasn't offended. I doubt you have much need to worry.

I always like it when someone takes a real risk and does something new.

Now I know where to go when the penny finally dies! Great idea. I hope the penny manages to survive.

A suitable epitaph for it, should it die.

But I'm hoping that will not be anytime soon...

I was thinking more about the Canadian and Australian pennies when I wrote this, as well as our 1 kopeek coin.

I don't think the U.S. penny should be withdrawn yet, even though it's minting price is above its face value...

My sister's name is Penny. She was my mother's first daughter. My mother said, no matter what would befall her in life, she would never be poor, because she'd always have her Penny. ;)
