Beautiful. Love the concept and execution. The penny was a little bit hard to interpret at first but 5$ nonetheless


I love concept and the simplicity of this design

"Penny would be printed in shiny gold" for some reason made me laugh, so... 5


Simple, beautiful - I love it.


you should include "Penny would be printed in shiny gold" on the t-shirt and if the shirt is printed, the penny should be not shiny gold. I don't understand what's going on, though. what statement is being made?

i think people might be a bit confused at the messege b/c why would someone wait for the shiny peeny to drop with all the paper wealth on the ground? Or is the child just more interested in the shiny aesthetic beauty of the most beat-up and underappreciated form of American currency than the ugly dull paper money already dropped? Am i thinking too hard into this shirt?


ummm where can i find this tree?

FRICKINAWESOME - Those are exactly the kind of questions I hoped people would consider when they see the design, so thanks I guess.

And thanks to all who have commented so far


Could the penny be printed in shiny copper instead?

Hmmm...this I do not know. Would be cool if it could though.

You wouldn't see the notes on the tee.

jemmawatt - there are only five colours, the guys face is the tee colour, then two browns, white, green and gold* Jillypilly - copper would be cool, but as mentioned above, I want it to be shiny so it stands out and though I'm not sure threadless could do copper, I know they have done gold.


who needs to get it? its pretty $5


why didn't this get printed?!

If only I didn't know the answer...the lack of love for it still hurts.
