There are a few ways to answer this question. If you are referring to the British penny, one US cent (often called the penny in the US) is about .75 of a penny from the UK but fluctuates depending on exchange rates. If you are referring to the US half cent, those haven't been minted since the first half of the 1800s.

You probably won't believe this but it was "Mind your own business."
