The average centre-to-centre distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,403 km. But the moon rotates around the Earth and the distance always varies.

Since I am not from America, I don't know exactly the dimensions of a penny. (If you actually referring to the American penny)

It also matters the geometric placement of the coins: do you put them on top of each other on the narrow side (like books on top of each other), or you place the circles to be tangent ?

But considering that the penny is 1mm on his side, and you build a "tower" of those until you reach the moon, then you will need 384,403,000,000 pennies.

Good luck with the work ! (and raising the money)

20 pennies stacked in one inch. Average of 238,857 miles to moon. 63,360 inches in a mile. This equals 302,679,590,400 American pennies stacked up to reach moon.

No. Stacked up, they would only reach about 200,000 kilometers. (128,000 mi) The average distance of the moon is 384,403 km. If the pennies were placed end to end, they would make it.
