In English English it's penny, not penney.  The current coin is a 2 pee or a
two pence coin i.e. two separate words, not twopence.  If you go back to pre
decimalisation days, as in Mary Poppins, the price of a bag of seed to feed
the birds was pronounced 'tuppence', not toppence.

  A two pence (the word for more than one penney) coin is called twopence,
  pronounced toppence.
