A penny saved is a penny earned. And if you multiply that by 62,000, you'd have enough to pay the final payment of your mortgage!
Thomas Daigle delivered a pair of boxes to the steps of Milford Federal Savings and Loan Association this April that contained more than 62,000 pennies, which he had collected for the past 35 years. [...]
After he purchased the home with a mortgage from Milford Federal, Daigle made it his mission to make the final payment in pennies.
He said that he just wanted to make his last payment “memorable.”
