Annual Momart gift for 2011.
BAC: British Art Center copy also includes printed letter from Momart announcing the gift.
Consists of a British penny coin affixed to a sheet of thick white paper. The reverse of the penny (with crowned portcullis and chains) faces up. The sheet bears the blind-stamped inscription: "Gavin Turk, 11". Accompanying the item is a single sheet (ink-jet printed?), the top of which features a photo of Turk stooping down as if to pick up an item from the ground, above a text that begins with the common rhyme: "Find a penny, pick it up, and all day you'll have good luck."
