I wonder how long it took to lay those? Had to be one at a time. Very cool.

Cute, but a complete waste of money..
That copper plating will wear off the pennies in no time, like after a few washings, leaving the zinc to rot quickly
Just look at some of the recent finds you have

Spart, I disagree. The pennies are covered with polyurethane and will not be affected by water. Think of a wooden bar that has papers, etc., on the surface under the polyurethane. They don't get wet.
BTW, neat looking floor, but too much work! I'll go with wood any day.

The pennies will not wear or oxidize as they are coated with 3 layers of polyurethane sealant, the floor is smooth to the touch. Every penny was individually positioned & glued with Weldbond Glue. He say's it took about a year to complete doing it on weekends & rainy days only. The grout is black sanded grout & he started with a concrete floor so not much prep was involved. Tho in the pic below it doesn't show em on a concrete floor maybe that was the trial run to figure just how many pennies were needed?
The section in this pic is 5000 pennies

The vinyl flooring is probably laid over the concrete floor, this would put the pennies on a movable substrate, and also act as a barrier to protect the pennies from the acid corrosion that may occur.

A buddy of mine, Tnet member, just did his bathroom floor that way about a month ago, looks very cool.
