Penny usually feels left out when she tries to hang with the Silver Coin Clique. The other coins, especially Quarter and Half Dollar who are best friends, do everything together and tell Penny she isn't worth much.
One day, Penny lands in a pocket with the beautiful Gold Dollar coin. Dollar is different from the silver coins too, and she starts to teach Penny how special and valuable she really is. With Dollar's help, Penny learns to feel as shiny on the inside as she looks on the outside as she is reminded of her many admirable qualities. Being different isn't bad, it’s what makes us unique.
