Nickel Canada

are pennies made of pure copper?, and if so.. are they worth more than thier monitory worth as scrap metal?

although I think it is illegal to melt US coins..maybe I'm wrong.. if I own a penny is it mine? or the governement's. Can I melt my pennies for scap to buy my babies food?..(hypathetical situation of course...no FBI need Visit)

they are not made of pure copper

In February 2008, the copper-plated zinc cent contains 0.6 cents worth of metal.

As of March 16, 2008, the price of pre-1982 US cent pennies which weigh 3.1 grams are 2.576016 us cents which is a 157.6016% above face value metal content at market and the post-1982 us cent pennies which weigh 2.5 grams are 0.683893 US cents in metal content which is 68.3893% metal content of face value which is not over face value. As each US nickel is 7.310391 us cents in metal content and is 46.20782% metal content at market over face value. All Pre-1982 US 1-cent pennies and all US 5-cent nickels are worth more in metal content than face value.

According to the US Mint, the costs of producing and shipping one-cent (penny) and 5-cent (nickel) coins during fiscal year 2007 are $0.0167 per penny and $0.0953 per nickel. Canada switched to making iron based coins in the year 2000, where the face value of coins is above the metal content of the coins. The US is in line to change the metal composition of the US pennies and US nickels if not all US metal coinage in the future
