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.
