Lucky Pennies Worth $1,000 Hidden in Texas

AUSTIN, TX -- When a wise person coined the phrase, "A penny saved is a penny earned," we bet they never imagined just how right one bank would make them look.

Ally Financial recently hid 100 lucky pennies in 10 cities around the country, and anyone who finds the pennies will get $1,000!

Before you take off on a penny hunt, make sure your city is included on the list. In Texas, Austin is the city that will be looking down at the ground hoping to strike it rich.

Why is Ally doing all this? According to them, about 5 billion pennies go out of circulation each year resulting in millions of lost dollars.

So, start being more mindful of keeping up with those pennies, especially if you live in one the cities chosen by Ally. It could end up being the luckiest penny you've ever come across in your life.
