Before we can understand what it might mean to come across multiple pennies, it’s a good idea to lay a foundational understanding of what it means to find a single penny.

Most of all, when you find a penny, it’s a sign of good luck to come. Remember the rhyme? It’s “see a penny, pick it up, and all the day, you’ll have good luck.” So, there you have it, finding a single penny is a sign that will you receive good luck throughout the day on which you find the penny. However, if the penny you find is tails up, some believe that it is bad luck to pick it up. So, it’s not universally accepted that finding a penny is bad luck.

For example, finding a so-called “bad penny” is not a sign of good luck, like it would be to find a more average looking penny. You know that feeling, you feel uneasy when you find a “bad” penny. Maybe the penny is covered in that thick grime, or maybe it’s all scratched up because it spent some time on an interstate—either way, when you get a bad penny, you feel it to your core.

But, don’t fret! Finding a bad penny isn’t necessarily bad luck. According to, the way in which bad pennies continuously turn up is likened to how undesirable characters continue to return in your life. You know, that one relative or friend who shows up and causes a crap storm every time? Well, they, like a bad penny, keep turning up.

And why do bad pennies keep turning up? Well, because you kind of feel bad spending them. Sometimes they’re so unpleasant that you might feel embarrassed to hand them over to the cashier as payment. But, on the other hand, you don’t want to throw the penny away—after all, it’s perfectly good money!

So, if you’re trying to manifest a problematic person leaving you alone in life, don’t hold onto bad pennies!

Tails Up pennies

As mentioned earlier in this article, to find a penny facing tails up is meant to be bad luck. So, naturally, don’t pick up a penny that’s tails up—it’ll bring you bad luck, so some believe. However, if you’re in search of good karma, there is something you can do with a tails up penny that can completely negate the bad luck for yourself and anybody else. Simply flip the penny over, leaving it with the head side up—then walk away! The next person to find the penny, heads up, can pick it up and benefit from its good luck all throughout the day.
