- The U.S. one-cent coin is 0.748031 inches in diameter (less than three-quarters of an inch) and weighs 0.0881849 ounces. - The composition of the penny is 97.5 percent zinc and 2.5 percent copper. - There have been 11 different designs featured on the penny. - The U.S. Mint produces more than 13 billion pennies annually. - There are more than 130 billion one-cent coins currently in circulation. - Since its beginning, the U.S. Mint has produced more than 288.7 billion pennies. Lined up edge to edge, these pennies would circle the earth 137 times. - The average penny lasts 25 years. - Sometimes a penny is worth more than a penny. If you think you're seeing double, save that coin. A 1955 penny has a "double-die date." In uncirculated condition -- not a blemish on it -- it's worth about $27,000. Even in less than perfect condition it'll fatten your bank account to the tune of $570. - An average of 1,040 pennies are produced every second, adding up to 30 million a day. - During its early penny-making years, the U.S. Mint was so short on copper that it accepted copper utensils, nails and scrap from the public to melt down for the coins. - The Lincoln penny was the first U.S. coin to feature a historic figure. President Abraham Lincoln has been on the penny since 1909, the 100th anniversary of his birth. - The Lincoln penny was the first cent on which appeared the words, "In God We Trust." - More than two-thirds of all coins produced by the U.S. Mint are pennies.

I made the sea weed from scrap sterling that was cuttle bone cast, melted scrap 14K gold into balls and added them, the 3 mm facted emerald is flush set at the bottom. The sea horse was made from wire fused to 22g sheet, the face is granulated and fused, the body is grandulated and the fin is recitulated. The eye is a silver ball, however it was supposed to be a flush set ruby, but, the metal had other ideas and after much frustration decided on the silver ball.
