US man pays off mortgage with two boxes of pennies10/07/2012 - 17:19:49
A US man has made his final mortgage payment with 62,000 pennies.
Thomas Daigle warned his bank that he had every intention of using his spare change to pay off his property loan for his Milford home in Massachusetts, so he turned up and dropped off the cash in two boxes, which weighed around 800 pounds combined.
Thomas started his penny collection when he first moved into the house in 1977 and since then whenever he and his wife Sandra picked up a coin they would say it was going towards their mortgage.
He told the Milford Daily News that he wanted to make his last payment "memorable".
