Fifty Thousand Pennies

Forty-nine thousand one hundred and fifty-two Pennies
[16w x 16h x 192 tall] - one cubic foot.
Three hundred pounds of pennies. Remember the stack of 16 pennies?
It was one inch tall. Well, take 12 of those and stack them and you'll have
a one-foot-tall stack. The cube above is made up of 256 of those one-foot
stacks, making one cubic foot of pennies.

Remember this cube, since it will be the building block for all upcoming
penny-structures you see in these pages. Now let's double it.
