Henry B. This is an odd question, but… I’m having a heckuva time trying to locate newly minted “shiny” pennies for a giveaway promotion. I bought $50 worth several years ago from a local bank and they’ve lasted me until now. Now my bank can’t get them anymore. I’ve tried several bigger banks – no luck. Do you have any idea for a source for new, shiny pennies? At face value would be great. Thanks for any help you can offer.
Try Brinks. They roll new coins for the banks. You should also be able to order a bag of new cents ($50 face) or any other new coins from the branch where you have an account. See a bank officer or the head teller. The CAN order you a bag if you are assertive (they just don’t want to be bothered).
