There are those who would ignore and walk past a penny found on the sidewalk. Then there are others who bend down and put it in their pocket. And then, there is artist Mike Worthington who incorporates his found coins in mini paintings that reflect the location and time were they were found.
You can see his Lucky Penny series on display in the window at Smith Hanten at 165 Smith Street.

My favorite is the Nathan's/ Coney Island Lucky Penny.
