Money Metals Exchange is pleased to offer copper U.S. pennies minted prior to 1983 at prices very close to melt value. These copper pennies are universally recognized and accepted, making them ideal for barter and trade. The very low premium to melt value makes them an excellent investment vehicle for copper. You can compare these coins to their silver equivalence, quarters or dimes before 1965, otherwise known as "junk" silver. Copper for sale on Money Metals is a great value and collectors piece. Check out real copper pennies!
ABOUT THE DESIGN
The US Mint produced Lincoln style pennies in 95% pure copper from 1909 - 1982 (Note: some 1982 pennies are not 95% copper as the Mint changed the metal content halfway through the year. However, Money Metals ensures that any 1982 dated pennies that may be included in our bags are in fact the 95% copper version - which weigh heavier than the non-copper ones). Lincoln pennies come in two designs on the Reverse. "Wheat" pennies featuring wheat ears were minted from 1909 - 1958 and were replaced by the Lincoln Memorial. Each dollar face value (100 coins) contains approximately 0.65 lbs of copper content... (Copper Penny) Check out all our copper for sale today!

Found about 70 wheat pennies in the 34 lb sack. All dates were 1940 and above. Among the wheat pennies were some S mint marks which made the order worth it for me. Also, I found about a dozen Canadian pennies which was cool. There is also the added bonus of filling in my collection post 1958 and looking for error coins. Overall it’s worth it.

Excellent bag of copper pennies. I haven't sorted through them yet - not sure if I will bother. I mainly just wanted a big bag of copper pennies. Thanks!

To the person who said they only got a dozen wheats in 34 pounds....that’s about average. I had a ryedale copper penny sorting machine and have searched through $100s of dollars face value of pennies. Every $25 box of pennies only had 6-7 wheat cents in it.

Of the 34 pounds I received maybe a dozen wheat pennies! Seemed to be pretty much sorted!
