    I got it right straight away... not because I knew it but because I had it in my mind to systematically go through each one till I found the correct one. The correct answer was A. Yay

    the one i selected was the same as the correct one but the date and liberty were the wrong way round, tried to narrow it down with logic like alot of people commenting here did (seeing as im not american) so i dont think i did too bad

    now time for the english penny and euro denomination! (though i dont know what that looks like either!)

    I got it right and I`m norwegian. I used simple logic though. I looked at all of them and picked the one who had the most in common with the others.
    For example: eight of them had "in god we trust" on top, as opposed to two who had "united states of america" and two who were blank. So I knew that "in god we trust" had to be right. Same procedure with all other features.

    The one who got it wrong? My missus, who`s from Hawaii.

    Crakr, I have a bunch of coins from Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Oman, Iran, Bahrain, and beyond. I`d be glad to send them on to you for your collection if you trust me enough to email me your address. My email`s in my profile.

    Glad to have them go to a good home where they`re appreciated. Jus` sayin`.

    This is just kinda sad, I first thought about it. Then I was searching for the penny on my desk. AND THEN, I started to reduce the number of possible answers via common knowledge. Guess this means most people don`t have it?

    Well, that`s good. I`d hate to think you`d keep searching after failing the first time and being given the answer =)

    Anyway, I was so close! I had the right penny but had the date and the Liberty backwards...but that`s okay, I`m Canadian? =D

    First off, DavidXJ, yes. Yes it is wrong. Second off, the only way this knowledge could come in handy would be determining a counterfeit penny from a real one. If you`re trying to determine if a penny is counterfeit, you probably have bigger fish to fry.

    Simple deduction... I couldn`t actually remember which was correct but more than half are looking right, so that`s probably right. More have "In spaghetti monster we trust" so that`s probably there too.. You get the idea.

    But like Joolin said, why does it matter? Who counterfeits pennies anyways?
