Best Answer

Two thousand and seven pennies are worth more than two thousand and six pennies. Its just common math.

Because 2007 pennies are more than 2006 pennies

for the fact that its simply one more. As in $20.07and $20.08.

because according to today's economic system in the U.S 2007 was the last year befor the recessin thus making them worth more

there is one penny extra if there are 2007 pennies than 2006 pennies

They costed more to make in 2007 than in 2006. Duh.

it depends on which way you look at it, if you say two thousand and seven pennies are worth more than two thousand and six pennies, then its math, but technicaly as prices in the world are going up and down, other things will be cheaper, say you had 2p, and there are 2p sweats, you can buy one, but your penny becomes worth more if the price goes down to 1p then you can buy two!!!!

Because it is 2,007 vs. 2,006

the person who typed the stuff above doesnt get it... the person who asked the question, is talking about the year 2007 not the number 2,007.. ( well I think the person who asked the question is talking about the year)

i am the person who wrote this Q i am Voleyballgirl i am talking about $$$ not the year

A new answer: If you are talking about US cents, I do not know of any reason why a 2007 cent should be worth anymore than a 2006 cent. Both have the same melt value (actual value of the metals contained in them) of $0.0038663 cents as of June 22, 2009. Both have the same composition and the same weight. They are the same except for the date.

Based on melt value alone, any Lincoln cents minted before 1982 are worth about 2 cents each for their copper content.

1960 pennies are worth more. Wrong!.... 2008 are worth more... its about quantity not YEAR Clever. But I would point out that the 1990 pennies would probably be worth the most due to the fact that they contain more copper =)

Based on melt value alone, any Lincoln cents minted before 1982 are worth about 2 cents each for their copper content.

it wasnt made out of the same materials it takes 1.7 cents to make 1 penny true factNOT a "true fact"Since mid-1982 all US cents have been made from the same material, copper-plated zinc. This question is a mis-reading of an elementary-school joke, "Why are 2006 pennies worth less than 2007 pennies?". The answer is that 2,006 pennies are worth $20.06 but 2,007 pennies are worth 1 cent more. ba DING!

1908 pennies Cents from 1908 have a collector value of at least 75¢, probably more. 1960 cents are made of copper but are so common that they aren't worth more than maybe 2 or 3 cents unless they're uncirculated. Cents made from mid-1982 to today are copper-coated zinc and are worth 1 to 1.5 cents as scrap. Besides, it's illegal to melt them. NOTE: This question is a typically a trick question. Consider that the year numbers are actually just numerical values, since there is no part of question that specifically states the numbers are years. In that case, two-thousand and seven (2007) pennies are worth $20.07; more than 1908 pennies which are only worth $19.08. Each penny is only worth a cent.

One Penny GBP in 2007 had the purchasing power of about £0.011 GBP today.

They are worth more because less were minted.
