The Search for the Oldest Penny

In celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s 209th birthday and in conjunction with an initiative spearheaded by the local Gold Coast Bank branch, Three Village Central School District students are working to find the oldest Lincoln penny in the community. 

The program was unveiled at Arrowhead Elementary School this February during the building’s spirit week. Members of the school’s student council met with bank representatives to learn about the program and the importance of establishing a pattern of saving. As a visual reminder of the meeting, each student was presented with a blue plastic piggybank and a shinny new penny. 

The bank made a donation to the school’s PTA as part of the challenge, and the student who finds the oldest penny over the next month will earn a separate prize.
