Best Answer

All pennies minted after 1982 weigh 2.5 grams each. (Older pennies weigh 3.11 grams) Newer cents are made of zinc because the price of copper increased so much that a copper penny was worth more than one cent.

So a roll (50 pennies) would weigh (2.5g times 50 = 125 grams) (125g divided by 28.35 ounces = 4.41oz) (4.41oz divided by 16oz =.28lb) Summary. 50 pennies (1 roll, not counting paper in the roll) (add about 1.5g for the paper) = 125 grams or = 4.41 Ounces or = .28 Pounds or = Probably almost 1/3 of a pound counting the paper.
