Hurry and you too can get eight ounces of pennies for $19.95 plus shipping and handling.

Hurry. The government won't be making any of these old pennies again!

Do it for Lincoln!

This all makes me wonder how many pennies are in an ounce?
I do know that 1,995 pennies equals $19.95, and that doesn't include shipping and handling.

I've always said that two cents jingles and a nickel doesn't.
What do you think about our old friend the penny?

But wait, there's more. The government says that a penny weighs about 2.5 grams. In 8 ounces there are about 226.8 grams. When you divide that by a half-pound of pennies, you get about 91 pennies for your $19.95 plus shipping and handling.

That comes to less than two rolls of pennies for your bucks.
