Best Answer

All pennies since 1983 are made almost entirely of zinc, covered with a thin coating of copper. Therefore, what you have is either a zinc penny that did not get its copper coating (worth abuot a dollar), or a normal penny that has been silver plated (no added value). You should be able to determine this by weight. A normal penny will weigh 2.5 grams. So if yours weighs less, then it's missing its copper coating. If it weighs more, then it's been silver plated.
