THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS is a powerful message! “…Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures” (1 Cor. 15:3). “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).

Jesus loved us so much that he gave himself as “the Lamb of God” to make atonement for our sins on the Cross of Calvary. The Holy Bible and the Cross of Christ assure us that when we repent of our sins and trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are made whole in him.

Can handing someone a Cross Penny (or putting them in cards or letters or leaving them with your tip in a restaurant, etc.) be a blessing to those that receive them? When backed by prayer and a desire to share the love of Jesus with others, I think YES! It can become a reminder to others of how much Jesus loves them, and there will be times when you are given the opportunity to tell them so.

Question: Is it legal to cut a Cross in US pennies?  Answer: It is illegal to deface US currency to defraud or make it appear to be other currency; but it is not illegal to cut a Cross in pennies or turn coins into a work of art…and I think cutting a Cross into a penny adds new meaning to the words IN GOD WE TRUST for many Americans.


You will come up with your own words, but here is a suggestion on how to use the Cross Pennies as a tool to help you witness to someone for Jesus when God’s providence brings you into conversation with others.

1) Somewhere in the conversation, hand them a Cross Penny and say something like: “Have you ever seen one of these?” And as they are looking at it say something like: “It’s a penny with a Cross cut into it. You may keep it.”

2) When they say “Thank You,” say something like: “You are welcome. I hope the Cross will remind you every day of how much Jesus loves you, and he really does.”

3) What happens next will depend upon how the other person responds to your witness to them for Jesus. God has helped you plant the seed, and now you keep them in your prayers.

    I have received my cross Pennie’s and they are great. My nephew is a preacher and I told him I would give it to him for his church and to do as he pleases. He’s very excited to get them.

    I found a cross penny today outside a hospital in Jacksonville, FL.
    As a Christian I knew that it would be a blessing in some way. I felt God’s love and as I looked at the cross, I was reminded of the sacrifice Jesus’ life gave me.
    I will share it with my Grandchildren, my children, FaceBook, friends and family. Most of all with my husband. He is growing in the Lord and he would be touched by holding it in his hands.

    Bro. Elmerwinner, Thank you for my Cross Pennies. I really love them. I want to make little cross necklaces out of these cross pennies for my ministry. Give them to every person I witness to about The Lord.

    Thank you for making these pennies! I give them out all the time. I just order more! I’m taking 30 of them to a recovery meeting tomorrow to hand out to the men and women in sobriety. They have received coins in AA and NA, but this is a very special coin for them!

      I cannot take credit for making the Cross Pennies…someone else does that for me; but it is a true blessing and has become a wonderful ministry to be able to purchase them in large quantities to share with others.
