Here are a couple of souvenir pieces from the Big Nickel attraction in Sudbury Ontario. Sudbury is a big nickel mining city.

Big Penny next to a cent coin. (Copper)


Big Nickel next to its real counterpart. (aluminum)

I've got to talk to you sometime. The big nickle is another lombardo product. I think that there was a statue of a replica of the 1951 commemorative 5c piece there in sudbury which this was to commemorate.

Woah, I've never seen the penny and I'm from sudbury... I had a stack of the nickels that I have to my grandpa (they were given out to us as bonuses for doing well on tests in primary school) but I haven't seen one in about 15 years.
