Copper Penny Bullion is Growing in Popularity

Cushing, OK (PressExposure) April 18, 2012 -- As the value of the United States dollar continues to tumble, many people are investing in copper penny bullion instead. As a hard asset, copper retains its value much more readily than the very volatile dollar, and it can be a great investment.

Copper penny bullion is one form of copper bullion, like bars and rounds. In the case of coins, there is 95%-98% copper in the coins. While it is not a precious metal, copper penny bullion is a monetary metal, it has been since ancient times.

But pennies no longer are considered copper penny bullion. In fact, the pennies we distribute today are mostly zinc, because it is cheaper to produce. However, pennies made before the year 1982 are still, in fact, considered bullion. You can now find these pennies being bought and sold online, as people are trading on their value, which remains fairly high and stable.

Adding to the value of copper is its stability in the physical form. While a pile of dollar bills will burn and stamp collections can be destroyed, copper is rather hardy, which makes it an even more tempting investment for someone looking for stable returns on an easy-to-maintain investment.

If you are considering investing in copper penny bullion, remember: the pennies need to be made before 1982. If they are, then you have one to keep. If they are after 1982, go ahead and spend them, because they are not worth anything.
