Description: "My name is Eli Ward, I'm 19 years of age, I'm from the U.S. Missouri. I've been stacking for about three weeks now since I've discovered this site. I was inspired to stack when I stumbled on this page." 2008-06-21-EliWard2.jpg

More photos from Tim Legg, Elk Grove Village, IL:

"The bottom circle is a circumference of 36 coins. Each echelon of layers is two pennies smaller than the previous. It is over 520 pennies tall and contains over 10,000 pennies. The bottom span reaches 5 pennies.

"After this, a 60 penny base will be build to achieve six 9-penny spans. It will be estimated to contain almost 40,000 pennies and stand about twice as tall. The current challenge is finding a solid foundation. Currently it is set on a wood floor that moves slightly that causes the top to wave."

This just goes to show that towers don't need to be round. No other pictures of this one exist. It was destroyed when it's 3 foot tall neighbor was demolished.

Mark from Birmingham UK sent this nice picture of this hollow dome with this description: When I saw the dome I had to see if it could be done upside down. It needed a bit of scaffolding (piles of pennies) until it could support it's own weight and it has a stack of pennies inside. Turns out it didn't need the stack on top. I bet someone could make a nice sphere if they had the time.

"A model of Petronas twin towers using mostly all dimes and a few nickles and quarters. It taken probably 4 hrs if I did it non-stop. There is a piece of card supporting the bridge in the center (that's because the bridge would have sag too much to look neat) There's not other supports holding the towers standing." -Thaibu Gholar
