Cents or pennies where not clad until 1982 so this is corrosion of some kind.

I will try to take a better picture because it seems to be the same material the penny is made of.

I took some better pics of this penny. Seems to be the same material the penny is made of if you look close.

It's not, it's clear glue and will peel off.

It will not come off, I have tried and can't make a dent in it. Definitely not glue.

And it is the same color as the coin.

It is the color and luster of the coin showing through the transparent substance. It will peel off if you give it a try.
