What happens when you take a single Euro coin and a two cent Euro and put them into a machine? Why you get a smashed coin of course!
Before I left for Rome, I went to the Penny Collector site that I use and found that there are many international cities that have coin smashing machines. I was determined to find a machine once I arrived in Rome since it looked like there were so many.
Fortunately, I was able to find two separate machines! This one was at a souvenir shop right across the street from the Colosseum. It had four options, but I only had two - 2¢ coins so I chose to get the Colosseum and the Wolf image.
The image of the wolf feeding the twins is seen throughout the city.
I really like getting smashed pennies as my main souvenir because they are inexpensive, easy to carry and are fun to make.
I brought the pennies home and put them in my book with the other smashed pennies that I have collected and of course, blogged about my good fortune!
I have missed being here each day. I hope that the past two weeks have been as good to you as they were for me :)
