What's the smallest denomination coin you will bend over to pick?

I am thinking the older you are the smaller the coin you will make the effort to pick up.

I've been picking up coins for along time, got a nice little Roth Ira going because of it.

If it's my money I dropped, I pick it up.

Just laying on the street...I don't have the time of day for anything less than a quarter. Even that's iffy.

If you ever see a bill on the street do you worry if there's a pile of **** under it? Occasionally I do.

I voted for quarter. Standards. But it has to be a shiny quarter. If its grubby, what's the point?

Depends....if a penny looks dirty or nasty, I'll let it sit, if it is nice and clean, I'll pick it up.

Same goes for nickels and dimes, but I'm less picky.

I'll pick up a quarter no matter what.

A penny. But then again, I'll occasionally pick up trash off the ground to throw away.

Judge's ruling: Should I wash my hands before I pick the coin up or after?

Coin is dirtier then your hands will ever be.

Ruling: Sterilize coin. Then wash hands.

How about the coins you already have in your pocket that have seen street time?

Yeah... and what about the women you've banged that have seen street time?

The point is everything is dirty so you might as well piss on your hands.

Dime and up. And only if it's clean and I'm not in pedestrian traffic. I'd stop for a five dollar bill in just about any scenario outside of poop involved. Twenty dollars for poop involved.

I don't walk around looking at the ground... but if I saw a quarter I'd probably pick that up.

One time I saw a quarter lying in the street but when I bent over to pick it up, I realized it was actually a peso. I was so mad I could have murdered someone.

You're right Baja, I'd pick up a penny. It bothers me to see money laying on the ground. But if it looks really dirty I won't pick it up, I'll kick it out of sight, so it doesn't bother me. ;D

I used to think that if I did not pick up the coin God would assume I had enough money and wouldn't grace me with any more.

Considering who made the thread, Im surprised a peso wasnt an option. (Just as an added note, Im not sure if a peso exists in coin form, nor do I really care)

a peso is worth 10 cents

I will pick up any coin, a penny saved is a penny earned, but I most exclusively collect silver coins and turn them in for cash. Usually give my pennies to those who collect 'em.

In line, I will pick up a nickel as I might need it for change. On the street walking, probably has to be a 1/2 dollar in coinage. By my car before getting in? Probably less.

I have a superstition that I've held since I was a kid and see no reason to give up, and I think it every time I see a stray coin on the ground:

"For Every penny I rescue, a hundred of his friends are headed my way." I see a penny as a future dollar, and a quarter as $25.00 just waiting to happen. Silly superstition, but it makes my day when I find loose change because of it.

The following is a true story:
Two Scotsmen are in a pub restroom. One hears the other swearing and looks around the corner to see his mate flipping a 50 pence piece into the toilet. He asks his mate "Angus, why did you just flip the 50 pence piece in the lieu"? "Well" Angus replied "I dropped a 5 pence in the lieu and you do nee think I would reach in for a 5 pence piece do ye?

This sounds horrible. A hundred of his friends headed my way? How big are they? What are they going to do to me? What if they don't speak English and have been drinking? Don't think I could handle that stress, I'd probably just leave it.

What is if you see a supermarket wrapped package package of sirloin steak still cold and clearly had just fallin out of someones bag in the parking lot of the store. Would you take it home and cook it up?

I would take it to the authorities. No one just loses steak. Something is up.

Not if they are from 1943. Steel pennies were the norm in 1943. I don't know that you'd be a millionaire from a copper one, but they are very valuable.

Poeple wont pick them up because they are dirty...hahaha- i find that very funny.


I pick up any currency I can find that I do not have to go waaaaay out of my way to pick up.

Bah - I'm too lazy. I'm not bending over for a coin ever. I don't even carry coins! The moment I get 'em they go in the tips jar or the charity jar (not because I'm a nice guy, I just don't want them!) - at worse I throw them in my fiance's handbag if shes there at the time!
