You might wonder how much does it cost to make penny countertops. Here is a quick comparison of martial cost per square foot straight from Makezine. With 288 pennies per square foot, it turns out that the material cost per square foot for a penny countertop is less than $6. It is much cheaper than that for granite countertops, even cheaper than that for laminate countertops. Even you use quarters, it is still less than $50 per square foot, no more expensive than granite.
