Given that we're talking about the current 1 US Penny presently in production for United States Mint Annual Sets, 30 pounds of pennies would then be worth approximately $54.43. See figures below:
1 US Penny = 2.5 grams; 30 pounds = 13607.77 grams
- Number of pennies = 13607.77 grams / 2.5 grams
- Number of pennies = 5443.108
100 pennies = 1 USD
- Amount in USD = 5443.108 / 100
- Amount in USD = 54.43108
