In 1893 the first elongated coin was born in Chicago, IL. It was a pressed penny with the "Columbian Exposition" printed on it. Since that time, elongated coins have exploded in popularity, and can be found at tourist destinations across the world. Instead of ignoring these machines, this objective asks you to intentionally seek them out.
