    1.27 mm (or .05 inches) for the thickness.

    .75 inches or 19 Millimeters in diameter.

    a penny's volume is .360 cubic centimeters and the mass is 3.1 grams (pre-1982) and 2.5 grams (after 1982).

    A pre-1982 penny contains about 28,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 copper atoms.

    A penny just happens to be almost an exact centimeter in diameter. Measure it yourself and see!

    Compute by multiplying this value by Pi and you've got your circumfrence. Admittedly the penny actually is not a plane figure but a three dimensional solid aligned with a cylinder in Solid Geometry. But I'm ignoring the approximately 2 or 3 mm thickness your penny!

    And guess what, it ain't worth doodley-squat nowadays as they say in the South!
