10 Penny and Nickel Crafts using Your Loose Change - My Tuesday {ten} No.20

Pinner wrote: For a keepsake that you will remember get two pennies one with the year you met, and one with the year you were married. Attach to a key ring with a little disc it could be copper, anything you can pick up at a local craft store. They can either come as is or you can engrave whatever you want on the disc. These make great favors as well.
