I throw mine away Jan, but I throw it into a big saucer and every so often I take it to a supermarket where they have a great machine that counts it all up and gives me the money (less a bit of "commission"), which I then spend on something totally frivolous (champagne is a favourite).
Must confess, though, I used to love taking handfuls of pennies and dropping them "accidentally" one by one whilst walking down busy thoroughfares (Hungerford Bridge was a favourite when I used to work in town). It can cause an amusing and harmless chaos.
...if you press it, they will come.
