Thanks to a reader for passing on from Ally:

    Doesn’t this count as putting counterfeit money into circulation? (Or are these being withheld from actual circulation and placed in public places?)

      I mean, they don’t look at all like an actual penny that one would use at a store, so I don’t think it’s counterfeit (as long as people are paying attention).

      Nowhere does it say they’re placed in circulation nor do they look like pennies beyond the color. Try not to spoil a fun scavenger hunt by over thinking it.

    More information in the press release would’ve been helpful. The main contest page has no useful information — I had to click on the rules (https://www.allyluckypenny.com/rules ) to determine that the faux pennies are being placed in “streets, parks and other public places and participating automobile dealerships determined by Sponsor.”
    And it’s too funny that Anon Spock is admonishing someone else for alleged spoiling of fun.
