A Georgia man whose vengeful ex-boss paid him his final paycheck in $915 worth of oily pennies finally got a “real payment” thanks to help from a coin-counting company.

“Coinstar has been in the coin business for 30 years and we process approximately 41 billion coins annually – so picking up 91,000 pennies was all in a day’s work,” the company said.

The company said it rounded the value of the pennies up to $1,000 and offered to donate the same amount to charities of Flaten’s choice.

Flaten picked two Atlanta-area animal shelters to receive the donations, according to FOX News.

“I gave the money to Royal Animal Refuge and TLC Pet Rescue. One saved my dog and one saved my mother’s dog,” he told the station Friday.

Flaten had reportedly been promised his final $915 check by January but the money never arrived. He later said his former boss accused him of damages to the company and refused to pay him properly.
