I see, I had not thought it is this way. I was thinking the logical continuation would be 3 pennies on the third square, 4 on the fourth... to follow the series 1+2+3+...+64
If it was doubling instead of increasing by one then clearly you would choose the 2^64 pennies. Although you would begin to find a need for a very large chessboard...
