Millions. But it's not a steel penny. Neat counterstamps though.

If it is real the face value of a penny is one cent.
Rest in Peace

I got one to match Fuzzy's too. Musta made a bunch for the Bicentennial. OP's coin is probably coated with nickel, should be slightly magnetic. Novelty coin worth $0.01, well, copper melt $0.0167

If it looks shiny silver-colored, there is a 99.99% chance that it is a copper cent that has been plated. The counterstamps give even more credence to that but, also make it collectable.

Hang on to it, for sure.

I have a 1976 penny that has the exact same counter stamps in the same locations. Does anyone know where these stamps came from?

They likely came from an aftermarket company(-ies) (think along the lines of Franklin Mint) and were packaged with various bicentennial celebration ephemera. Just a guess there.

These were very common during the bi-centennial. Many people with many stamps producing many coins.

I actually got one from my Father in 1976 before the 4th as a kid. Each one of us got one all chome looking. Five children in my family at the time. It was attached to a color pamphlet explaining what the bicentennial celebration was all about. I wish I had kept it. Looked just like it. I think these are real but not by the mint.

Just to make sure it's not Steel, get an Arc Welder's torch and hit with the flame. If it's only Copper, it will melt. Of course it the flame is hot enough, even the Steel will melt.
And

Southern Rainman!

It would be neat to have the pamphlet/coin set.
