I'm not sure crunch but if i were to guess it is probably a box of 50 or 100 rolls. I'm sure someone will come along and correct me if need be.

Thanks for the replies.
It's more than I thought I was thinking $5 worth.
I use my pennies to pad my Amazon account at coinstar. I usually fish out the wheaties 1st though.

Thanks for the pics. Hope you find some good pennies in there.
I think If I was going to check out coin rolls I'd go for the quarters.

Any penny (copper) that is worth over double face value is a good penny! About 22% of them usually.

Is it actually called a "brick" when you go to the bank or do you ask for a 25$ box?

I just ask for a $25 box. Don't think it is called a brick in the banking industry. But maybe so...
