Will the metal prices rise so high that it would become economical to melt down pennies for the metals they contain? The future of the penny can only be determined by Congress, but until a decision is made, people across the country are holding onto their pennies. Due to this high consumer interest, the United States Commemorative Gallery is releasing 1/2 lb. vault bags of valuable Lincoln Wheat Pennies minted from 1909-1958.
This may be your last chance to get wheat pennies at a reasonable price. In fact, all pennies may disappear from circulation if current trends hold. It's been reported that due to a surge in metal prices, at one point it cost the U.S. Mint® nearly one and a half cents for each new penny produced. Can these metal price fluctuations signal an end of the penny as we know it? Will this cost increase revive interest in The Legal Tender Modernization Act introduced to Congress in 2001, which advocated the elimination of the penny?
The historic Wheat Pennies have always been popular and have kept their value because they are the first coins to depict a real person, Abraham Lincoln, versus a mythic figure. They were also the first cents to be engraved with the words "In God We Trust." All Lincoln Wheat Pennies are 95% copper.
A coin expert on the internet recently strongly recommended that coin collectors save their copper pennies instead of selling them at bullion value because so many copper cents are being melted down right now, wheat pennies are bound to rise in value.
