It Makes Good Cents is an ongoing project that I began in 2009 when I decided
that I would collect pennies for a year monitoring the side the coin was found on.
The project continues to the present day with the activity of collecting coins being a part of my daily life. In addition to the monitoring of the side I also engage in a wide variety of activities involving the penny within each year. These activities include photo scans of more damaged coins along with additional pattern finding observations.
