    The penny will be obsolete by 2040, it is already in the works, that is the projected date for it to be gone.

    Yes, plz elaborate. I could see it for the modern NICKEL. Not dime or quarter.

    The nickel is HEAVY (relative to the 5-cent face value). $1.00 in nickels has a higher melt value:

    Answer:

    Total melt value is $1.15.

    ...b/c of the copper/nickel metal.

    Coins suck, they weigh down your pockets.

    I have a full BIG bucket of coins at home collecting dust that I accumulated over the years. It's heavy as shit and I'm unmotivated to find a coin counter some where and lug it in. Chase Bank where I bank doesn't have a counter. Even the banks don't want the coins these days.

    Ballys is giving 20% on your change while that green machine at the grocery store is charging you 10-15%. Cashier said you donít need to roll your change either.

    banks by me want you to roll it and write your account number on each roll. i have no patience to do so. hard to find a coin counter also.

    a bank should bring it back. great selling point.

    Polo, pennies and nickels now have greater melt value than the face value. Want a tip? Look at your pennies for copper dates.

    Spend the dimes/quarters over the counter. Govt is ripping you off w/ low-metal value.

    I am collecting them now Illini. Great long term collector value. Especially pre 1982 where the copper
    copper content was 95%.

    Another great tip. Salud.

    Only problem is that they start to take up a good bit of room. Could be more liquid in the near future.

    Actually it is only 94.2% but the governement says 95% I am a penny guy and know this for a fact. It seems like not a big deal but it is a very big deal.

    Thanks Illini,

    I have gotten into collectible coins the past few years, but have much to learn on the topic.

    Plain stupid to pay with cash these days. You are being financially irresponsible if you do!


    AAmerica Exxpress offers 5% back at major grocery chain stores which is crazy good kick backs that I take advantage of monthly.

    Other cards that offer 5% cash back. https://wallethub.com/best-5-cash-back-credit-card

    My guess there I'd no doubt a couple billion dollars in counterfeit coins in circulation. They go completely undetected. Trying to inventory the current circulation is a daunting task.
