Children helped to collect pennies surround the 'Penny Harvest Field' which includes an estimated 100 million pennies ? plus a few nickels, dimes and quarters that slipped in by mistake.
Photo in left shows the unveiling ceremony Monday, Dec. 10, 2007 in New York. The approximately one hundred million pennies, gathered by school children across all five boroughs of New York City, filled a 165x30 foot 'Penny Harvest Field' in Rockefeller Center.
The funds will be donated to various charities.
The exhibit was designed by architect James Polshek and will be on display in Rockefeller Center, near the famous Christmas tree, through the end of the year. (commoncents.org)
