I once super glued a coin here and there on the linoleum floor of a home improvement center. Loads of fun watching people trying to pick it up. I also photocopied a dollar onto clear adhesive material and stuck it on a green colored tile there, some dumb kid tried to pick it up.

If these people ever drop a penny onto their finished floor, I'd love to see them look for it. "Honey, it's just a penny, forget about it".

... im a numismatist and like all collectibles its condition condition condition ... now there would be problems for a penny with glue on the back especially if they tried to clean it ... me im saving up for that trillion dollar coin ... i think the record was and still is the 1933 st. gaudians gold piece (double eagle) that went for 7.5 million ...

How big was the room?
39,000 pennies will cover a little over 12 square feet, so the cost comes to about $31.70 per square foot. Pretty expensive.
