Description: I'd call my work ''the reminder of remnant pillars of the ancient empires'' or just "Stacking pennies instead of studying for exams!" as a fellow pennystacker wrote :)

pm: it is really astonishing to find out that there are so many people who stack coins :D.. as for a few minutes ago I was the only one I know who did this. I was running out of ideas and had to look up on the internet whether there are some guys who have this very interest as mine.. and here I am!!

I stacked coins many years ago and didn't start again until recently. It is exam time and this is just the right occupation to stall time :)

Stacking coins is a worthy hobby it challenges you creativity and your dexterity.

Benjamin Carlyle from Brisbane, Queensland Australia sent this photo on 26 April 2009.

Description: A one-span and a two-span bridge in Disney Princess Flip 'n' Match Memory Game tiles, with Miss 3 as model. The one-span bridge consists of two five-high pillars topped with three tranches of coins. The space in-between is filled with four tranches. The two-span bridge consists of two three-high pillars topped with three tranches of coins. The space in-between has three tranches. The first bridge had structural integrity sufficient to press down firmly. The second was unable to support the weight of an Australian 10c piece.


Submit your amazing coin stacking pictures.

Note: All stacks of coins were done without any glue. Only the weight of the coins provides the support. Enjoy the pictures. Coin Stacking is a fun hobby for kids, college students and adults.
