Default Penny investors

Any penny investors here?

Pennies are worth two cents in copper so people are buying them in bulk in hopes the Fed will decommission the penny and they can melt them to sell.

That seems kinda strange considering they're mostly made of zinc.

Pennies made after 1984 are 97% zinc. Pennies made before 1984 were about 80% copper.
