  Penny \Pen*ny\, n.; pl. {Pennies}or {Pence} (p[e^]ns). Pennies
     denotes the number of coins; pence the amount of pennies in
     value. [OE. peni, AS. penig, pening, pending; akin to D.
     penning, OHG. pfenning, pfenting, G. pfennig, Icel. penningr;
     of uncertain origin.]
     1. A former English coin, originally of copper, then of
        bronze, the twelfth part of an English shilling in account
        value, and equal to four farthings, or about two cents; --

        denarius).
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: "The chief Anglo-Saxon coin, and for a long period the
           only one, corresponded to the denarius of the Continent
           . . . [and was] called penny, denarius, or denier."
           --R. S. Poole. The ancient silver penny was worth about
           three pence sterling (see {Pennyweight}). The old
           Scotch penny was only one twelfth the value of the
           English coin. In the United States the word penny is
           popularly used for cent.
           [1913 Webster]
