Jacksonville, Oregon: Floor of 120,000 Pennies (Gone)

Cafe owners gathered 120,000 pennies -- from banks, friends and customer donations -- for floor covering in a 2014 renovation of their tiny eatery. New owner bought the cafe in 2022 and installed a new, boring floor.

The Mustard Seed Cafe closed permanently in September 2022. Don't know the fate of the floor of pennies.

Mustard Seed Cafe: Penny Floor

Yummy place for breakfast and lunch. After eating breakfast we finally noticed the floor, which is covered in pennies, along with a counter wall.
