Re: How many pennies does it take to make 1 lb?
Why do you think they outlawed it?

As much as I hate coins, even the new zinc stuff, it's still a tangeble metal....

Anyone know anywhere where you can 'buy' pennies? I hear you can get them at banks but they charge a fee...


Anticipating this, the government just passed new laws with very stiff penalties for melting any US coins.

1lb=16oz
1 penny weighs 0.08825 oz
1 lb=182 pennies
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 326961

The direct answer to the OP question.
Might be good to know if you need a "standard weight measure" for a pound's weight.

As for copper... 1943 STEEL pennies have NO copper... dah.

Re: How many pennies does it take to make 1 lb?
So lets say a person has alot of pre 1982 pennies. If they were to count them, by the way im assuming the measure of around 150 pennies for the pound, is there a place that would buy them for thier intrinsic copper value? Or is the scraping/smelting assumed in the process.

Re: How many pennies does it take to make 1 lb?
I have many hundreds of pounds of them as I knew they would be worth a lot more in the future. Once you know how the fiat money masters work, it didn't take a genius to figure out. They also block radiation almost as well as lead, so if there ever is a dirty bomb, or heaven forbid a nuke in my vicinity, I'll stack boxes of them around and on top of my dining table and have a decent fallout shelter (which is more important here in Cali where houses don't have basements).

Now, this is a good idea. Excellent use for pennies.
