It's only illegal if its put back into circulation! You can do whatever the **** you want with a penny/nickel/dime/quarter/dollar bill as long as you never use it again.

Not in Canada (well at least not anymore) we're phasing out our pennies :/

i think America is planning to soon, or thinking about it. hoard pennies for 20 years, sell them, get rich. BOOM

Where I live, it's illegal to shoot buffalo from the second floor of a motel. We don't have buffalo here. Or two-story motels.

People suggest laws like that just to make sure the public is listening. Judging by the fact there's a list of dumb-ass laws like that with over a thousand entries...they usually aren't.

Then why is there a penny-flattener machine in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural Science (or something like that)?

I'm pretty sure those don't use the same penny you put in, they use a different penny that was removed from circulation.

Nah, it has a handcrank that flattens the penny and imprints something on it. Then the penny comes out.

I know what machine's your talking about but I'm pretty sure they have a storage area for phased out pennies that get used instead of the one you put in

The process of creating elongated coins is legal in the United States, almost all parts of Japan, South Africa and parts of Europe. In the United States, U.S. Code Title 18, Chapter 17, Section 331 prohibits "the mutilation, diminution and falsification of United States coinage." The foregoing statute, however, does not prohibit the mutilation of coins, if the mutilated coins are not used fraudulently, i.e., with the intention of creating counterfeit coinage or profiting from the base metal (the pre-1982 copper U.S. cent which, as of 2010, is worth more than one cent in the United States). Because elongated coins are made mainly as souvenirs, mutilation for this purpose is legal, when location of the coin presser has the permit from the mint to do so.
