Is anyone out there investing in copper bullion?



  1. LOL -- no, the only "copper" I'm investing in right now is FMJ ...


  2. Yes, my copper bullion is made by Barnes.

  3. Not bullion, but I keep all pre-1982 pennies and all nickels that I lay hands on because their metal content is already worth more than their face value.

    See http://www.coinflation.com/ for a bit more on this.


  4. Yeah. I have about 30lbs of cents. Most of the cents I have are all wheat cents. I think that 145 cents. equal a pound. I always wondered how many coins it would to make a bullet, not that's it illegal to melt the coins, I just wondered.

    Kerodin, If you were to make the III coins out of copper I could donate them to the cause.

  5. What size / quantity? Coins or Bars?


  6. I keep saving up copper pennys and nickels. Scrap copper too,but being a working class guy I usually turn the change in and scrap the scrap!


  7. AOCS Mint has some nice 1oz ‘coins’, they also do custom orders, talk to them, I’d buy some III% copper to promote the cause.

  8. Can you folks see coppoers becoming used in an economy-down scenario for smaller purchases? For instance - do you think Mrs. Farmer John would take a few coppers for a dozen eggs, or do you think for the smaller purchases of daily necessities most people will want to barter instead?


    1. I don’t see copper in the economy-down scenario you present, silver or barter yes, but as a promotional/challenge coin- yes, I give out copper just to get people aware of the idea of barter and coins that have intrinsic value, d’anconia copper - to get people thinking, 1/2 oz or 1oz III% coppers would be great conversation starters.

  9. I am thinking that pre-65 dimes will fill the gap, realistically in to-days economy, a dozen eggs with any profit for the farmer is going to be at least a dime. If the pre-82 copper is too small then you might look at minting the equivalent if the large cent ~ 11 grams. I am still thinking that for the most part barter will cover anything that a dime will not buy outright.


  10. save all Old and new pennys. pre 1980 mostly copper , post zinc plated with copper. 70% copper + 30% zinc = brass. a jug of old pennys and a dead car battery = about 50 lds bang stik candy.
