If the Pennies are from 1983 to Present, then roughly 181 pennies.

If the Pennies are from 1982 and earlier, the roughly 146 pennies.

There can be a couple ways to look at it. We will just consider a normal size US cent.

From 1983 to Present pennies weigh 2.5 grams

1982 and earlier (Modern & Wheat Lincolns) pennies weigh 3.11 grams

The difference is due to the a higher amount of Copper (95%) in earlier pennies. Modern pennies contain very little copper and are about 97% Zinc.

1 pound = 453.59237 grams

Math453.59/2.5 = 181453.59/3.1 = 146

Over 1,000 years ago when the British Penny was first minted, they were made from gold. 240 Pennies weighed one pound, which is why the British Pound came to be known as the Pound. There were 240 Pennies to the Pound until Britains conversion to decimal currency in 1971.

1 pound (weight) is equal to about 453 grams. The current British Penny weighs 3.56 grams, so there about 127 Pennies to the pound (weight).

It depends how many pennies is in a pound of pennies.1.482 dollarsCorrection and ExplanationAssuming you have US cents minted after 1982, they weigh 2.5 grams each. There are 453.6 grams in a standard pound, so that means a pound of pennies consists of 453.6/2.5 = 181.44 coins, or a bit more than $1.81If the coins are dated before 1982 they weigh 3.11 grams each so a pound would be 453.6/3.11 = 145.8 cents, or about $1.46

Cents weigh different amounts depending on their dates. Before 1982, cents weighed 3.11 grams. Cents issued after 1982 weigh 2.5 grams. Cents issued DURING 1982 could weigh either amount (is this getting complicated enough?) A pound is equivalent to 453.6 gm, So with pennies made before 1982 it would take 146 pennies to get 454.6 grams... With pennies made after 1982 it would take 182 pennies.
