Punctuated by a degree of whimsy, "Shiny Old Penny" relates an account of what happens after a man drops a coin as he hurries to catch the bus. You imagine how such an event might appear from the penny's perspective, offering a potentially unique look at issues relating to faith, generosity, and self-worth. In the conclusion of "Shiny Old Penny" the title figure becomes an inhabitant of a rare coin shop when the old man takes it there to sell. Using a method of personification, this narrative is designed to entertain and capture the imagination as well as to impart a message based on a view that each individual might have a special capacity to contribute to society.
