Woman Glues 7,700 Pennies To Her Bathroom Floor And Potentially Misses Out On Fortune

A woman stuck over 7,000 pennies to her bathroom floor to give the room a makeover, but she might have glued down a rather expensive coin:

Jordan Darian shared the renovation project on her TikTok account @ladyjordania where she explains that 7,700 coins went into the new floor.

Darian, who is a co-founder of a female-focussed CBD brand, glued each penny down on to the wood effect tiles that were already down before sealing the creation with $300 (£212) worth of glue.

In one of her videos of the DIY project, she said: "$77 that no one can ever spend again."

She added: "Took me 16 hours to penny the floor. I used Elmer's glue to secure the pennies. I sealed the floor with epoxy resin, it cost around $300."

But, according to one of her followers - there may be a coin lurking in her collection worth a bit more.

According to the Independent, in 1996 one of the 1943 copper-alloy pennies sold for $82,500 (£58,300), but there was no confirmation if one had actually been glued down.

She has since admitted: "Since posting the video to TikTok I learned I may have made a very big mistake by not checking the pennies prior to permanently adhering them to my floor.

"I had no idea a penny could be so valuable and there are at least eight wheat pennies, upside down, so we are unable to check the year."

Explaining the process she added: "The first year was an actual living nightmare but the labour of love was worth it and everyone tells us if we made it through a live-in renovation our marriage will stand the test of time, and I'd have to agree.

"I decided to penny the bathroom floor because it was something my mom had always talked about doing and I loved the idea.

"How many penny floors have you seen? I love fun decor and design surprises in a home."

Well, there are surprises and then there are coins that should have been cashed in rather than stuck to the floor.
