Coins of Fortune

Needed:

  • Penny or silver coin

To improve your overall serendipity, find a penny (preferably one minted in the year you were born). When you find it use the old childhood rhyme as an incantation:
“See a penny pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck.”

If you want the charm to last longer than twenty-four hours, watch for a silver-toned coin instead, and change “day” to “month”.
