Considering that the memorial cents are 95% copper and 5% tin...
95% of total weight isn't a bargain?
As of now your still not allowed to melt cents to recycle the metals.
I know a guy that took 1000 copper cents and sculpted an eagle for his metal detecting shop.
Someone really liked it and traded him paper money for it.
Don't even bother taking them to the scrap yard.
They won't buy them.
You're better off rolling them up and depositing at your bank.
It's illegal to melt copper pennies as rte said. I don't know why. And @paddyman98 is right, the scrap yards will not take them.
At 12.5 cents on the dollar? No Thanks.
The only coins that I send to one of those is from metal detecting.
