I need about 13,000 Pennies...

I should have thought of this earlier...

But if you guys have an excessive amount of pennies, I would gladly trade you the cash for them.





Needing it for penny tiled floor for renos and art projects...



*sigh* why did I procrastinate...

or you could just google it...

Quote:
There are 304 pennies in a square foot (when "nesting" supposedly)

However
16 pennies = 12 inch line.

16 X 16 = 256

************************************************** *************

Despite the difference of 48 pennies between the two answers above, both answers could be correct.

If pennies were square, then answer #1 would be incorrect.
Answer #2 relies on the pennies being arranged in a grid pattern. 16 x 16 = 256.

However pennies are circular and can be "nested" when arranged. That means that the first row would be 16 pennies. The second row would be 15 pennies, the third row would be 16 again, then 15 again, etc. Because of the nesting, additional rows can be added in the same square foot of space. I haven't tried to see how many more pennies could be accommodated by this nesting (or "staggering") so I don't know if the 304 is an accurate count in such a case. However there would certainly be more pennies per square foot in a nested arrangement than in a grid arrangement.

Pennies would be mounted to bare concrete with 2-part epoxy.
Then covered with a a couple thick coats of high-gloss polyurethane until the surface is flat.

Should be cleaner than your average tile flooring. No grout, everything wipes off easy.

My calculations put it at just a little over 250 pennies per sq ft.


The tiles I have in my home start from $0.50/sq ft. You just need to know how and where to shop for them.

For me, with the amount of manpower and time needed, this a total labor of love.

I know, I'm a sick bastard or it's just too early.

imagine if OP is just trolling and going to a bank with the donated $130.



Should take advantage of newer and older (dirtier) pennies to make patterns.

He's a buddy of mine and is very lucky I have been too lazy to take in my canister of small change. If you're serious about donations PM Culverin or me to arrange for pickup. It will look awesome, but I am very much not looking forward to putting down dots of epoxy and inhaling the fumes for several days.

I don't know about donations - Culverin says in his first post that he's willing to pay the equivalent amount of cash for pennies!

I should've been more clear. Donations of materials in exchange for equivalent currency.
