The materials used to mint pennies has changed. Originally, pennies were made of almost pure copper. Today, British pennies are made of nickel/steel blanks coated in copper, and US "pennies" (actually cents) are made of zinc blanks coated in copper.


Originally pennies were made of copper. They are now made mainly of zinc.


Because they are error coins. 1943 was the only year that the US intentionally minted steel cents, those coins are not rare and only fetch a few cents or a dollar or two. 1944 steel cents are error coins and were not intentionally struck, rather, steel blanks were left in the machine used to strike pennies and they were struck in steel rather than copper. Other 1944 pennies are made out of copper and are not rare and they only fetch a few cents.


It used to be made for pennies.


1943. See Related Links for a picture and some history.


Usually, steel is used to make a steel rule.


A final decision hasn't been made yet. At this point there is serious discussion of using plated steel, similar to the metals used by several other countries for low denomination coins. Plated steel has been successfully minted in Canada, the U.K., and the EU.


Pennies are made up of 97% zinc, and 3% copper. All though this seems unbelievable, it is true. Earlier in History, pennies were made up of jut copper, but that got too expensive, so the U.S government changed the pennies material, to Zinc, and copper.


threads are made by high carbon steel and high speed steel. the body of die made by steel and carbon steel


Among American pennies (cents, actually) only the famous wartime steel cents made in 1943 are magnetic. All other US cents are made of metals such as bronze or zinc that aren't attracted to a magnet. In 200 Canada changed the composition of its cents to copper-plated steel, so those coins are attracted to a magnet but earlier issues aren't British pennies have been issued in both bronze and copper-plated steel so depending on the year of issue they may or may not be attracted. In some years both compositions were used, which makes things a bit more confusing. Euro cents are all made of copper-plated steel so they too are attracted.


Yes zinc is used in pennies and it is used in sunscreen.


The daggers of the Romans were made of steel.


Technically, copper coins cannot be made magnetic because copper cannot be magnetised. The only way to do so in practise is to change the coins' composition. English pennies became magnetic in 1992; made with steel and a fine coating of copper. They used to be completely made of bronze which does not attract. Canadian pennies were made magnetic in 1997 and were made of steel with a thin layer of copper - they would be attracted to a magnet and would appear at first glance to be made of copper. Copper-coloured US cents have never been attracted to a magnet. Cents minted in 1943 were made of zinc-coated steel due to wartime metal shortages but these coins had a silvery-grey colour.


Steel can be made into many things like stainless steal objects like cutlery. Pans are made out of steel right? steel can be used for reinforcing Bridges, and Building's. Steels also used in bike frames and probes used somewhere is cars too. in some houses above the windows you can get Steel. you would also find metals in Gardening tools to such as Gardening Forks and Shovels. Literally Nealy everything is made out of steel or has steel in it! Hope that helps:)


None. The first steel cents were struck in 1943. Because the steel blanks weren't used until after the end of the 1942 runs there was no possibility of off-metal strikes like the famous 1943 copper or 1944 steel errors.


Steel is used for its high tensile strength and the concrete is used for its high compression strength.


Penny's (and other coins) are used to round out purchases that are made with bills.


Steel is commonly used.


Copper pennies, obviously copper. Brass, obviously brass. Nails, I believe would be steel. I believe the correct answer is Zinc. YEA WHAT THEY SAID =D


AR steel is abrasion resistant steel. It is made with nickel, manganese, boron, and chromium. AR steel is used on plow blades.


Please post a new question with the country or countries you're interested in. Pennies (or cents) are used in about 5 dozen different countries.


American nickels are made of 75% copper and 25% nickel Canadian nickels used to be pure nickel but are now made out of steel.


Nails were not used to build the ship. It was made of steel. Rivets are used in steel.


stainless steel is used to make steel since it is durable,can be easily moulted and is rust resistant


pennies can be best used as such. How many pennies do you have?
