I'm assuming GBP is the money in question and that a penny is 1p.£1,000,000 is

(1,000,000*100) pennies=100,000,000 pence

A one pence coin, according to the royal Mint, weighs 3.56g, which is 0.00356kg. Thus 100,000,000 pennies weighs

(100,000,000*0.00356)kg=356,000kg

Which in pounds (which is probably the joke you were after) is

784,846 lbs

So, £1,000,000 in pennies weighs less than 1,000,000lbs.

You are watching: How many pennies in a million

Footnote:I wondered exactly how much 1,000,00lbs of gold is worth in £.Pure yellow is 41.17USD every gram, The exchange rate is 1 USD=0.81GBP and there space 0.00220462lbs in a gram, so yellow is

£15,186.16 every lb

So therefore, 1,000,000lbs of yellow is around

£15,186,160,000

There space 16oz every pound, for this reason a penny weighs 0.00548571 pounds.

So, that takes 1,000,000 / 0.00548571 = 182,291,809 pennies in 1 million pounds (\$1,822,918.09)

How much does 1 million pennies weigh?

1,000,000 * 0.00548571 pounds = 5,485.71 pounds = 2.74286 tons
