It's worth a quarter because we trust the economy and believe it to be a quarter. Although the physical value is not worth a quarter, it's still worth a quarter. So no you're not getting ripped off.

A quarther used to have 25 cents worth of copper in it now it has 2 cents worth of copper are you getting ripped off?

A quarter never had 25 cents worth of copper in it. Quarters used to be made of roughly 25 cents worth of silver, but are now made of mostly copper due to cost reasons. The fact remains that a quarter is still worth 25 cents, and if you should so wish you could go and buy 25 cents worth of copper with it (a little more than two ounces of copper). Sorry I ment to say a quarter used to have 25 cents worth of silver in it now it has 2 cents worth of copper are you getting ripped off? I will reenter the question. Thanks.
