See a penny

"See a penny, pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck."

That's how the old saying goes. But if you find a 2-cent euro coin, do you have twice as much luck?

Or, given that it's a euro coin, does it depend on the nation of issuance? Greece might bring unstable luck at best.

Just wondering.
