Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *pěnędzь, which was borrowed from some Germanic term, probably from Old High German phenning ‎(a kind of coin), which comes from an older Old High German form phendi(n)g. Older origin is not clear, sometimes it is being connected with Latin pondus ‎(weight).[1] Compare Czech pence, English penny and German Pfennig.
