1996 British Penny

Do you have British penny and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Odds of winning the $587,000,000 Powerball lottery is 1:175,223,510.
Odds of finding a British coin in your American change 1:14,610 (in the U.K. it is 1:1).

Do not ask about the formula I used it is a complicated permutation that is probably off by 5-95%. Still finding a coin from across the pond is not that rare. I mentioned before how the royal wedding and the recent Olympics would make British coins more common globally.



Currently I see no other global events that will lead to mass travel like the Olympics. Although Greece just found a fix for their financial crisis. If it holds up then Euros will be flowing again outside of Europe since they have slowed down over the last year.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Penny / Great Britain
Year: 1996
Mintage: 723,840,000
Metal: Copper-Plated Steel
Value: $0.03 in VF (very-fine)

Do you have a coin from Great Britain and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I only searched like 300 cents yesterday and found 2 British pennies, so your odds must be wrong.

Plus, I searched only like 4 or 5 thousand cents, and found like 16 British pennies (this is during my lifetime).

Probably but if you add the bills/notes it will be closer to the odds I calculated.
