A 1972 US cent would be made of solid bronze and have a different color than a new one, but not goldish. If it sticks to a magnet, it is either not real or has been coated with some metal with magnetic properties.

Assuming you found it in circulation, at most 2 cents depending on how worn it is.

No. No genuine US coin other than the 1943 steel penny will stick to a magnet. If you have a US coin that sticks to a magnet other than the steel penny, it is a counterfeit.

If it sticks to a magnet then it is not copper. If it does not stick to a magnet then take it to a collector to be evaluated. It could be worth a lot of money.

Your "black" penny is most likely a 1943 steel penny. (Check it with a magnet. If it sticks its steel) It is worth about .10 - .20 cents.

Try the magnet test, if it sticks to it, it's steel.

Put it under a magnet. If it sticks it is a steel penny. If it does not stick take to a collector or professional who can examine it further and give you a answer.

A normal 1979 penny will not stick to a magnet -- it's made almost entirely of copper -- a non-magnetic material. So for your coin to stick to a magnet, it has to either be fake, or plated with some kind of magnetic material. In either case, it's value would only be as a novelty item -- perhaps a couple dollars at best.

If genuine, they are worth tens of thousands of dollars. Certification is required.However, 99.9% of them out there are fakes. Try checking it with a magnet -- if it sticks, it's a fake.1943 copper penny? Value (US$): $200000

Unless it's a proof coin, 1ยข Note that this site has a Coins and Currency thread for asking questions about, well, coins and currency. Money and Credit is for things like checks, credit cards, loans, etc.

The vast, vast, vast, majority of 1944 pennies are copper. If it sticks to a magnet it /might/ be steel, though you'd have to take it to an expert to make sure it wasn't altered from a steel 1943 penny.

The best way to find out if it is real, simply use a magnet. It will cling to the magnet if it is a real steel penny.

If it is copper, than it is worth thousands of dollars: unless it is a fraud which you can find out by placing it on a magnet. It will stick if it is fake. If your penny is silver colored, if uncirculated, it is worth about a dollar. if circulated, about 25 cents.

No. Copper is not attracted to a magnet.

User Avatar

No. Copper is not a magnetic metal. But you knew that already because you tried using a magnet on an ordinary penny, correct?

User Avatar

No, copper is not magnetic.

User Avatar

because the penny can't be magnetically charged.

Please check your coin with a magnet. The only steel cents were made in 1943. Yours is almost certainly plated.

We found on at Sears, in our change. It is steel because it sticks to a magnet. I am here because I wanted an answer to this question. But I have one so Yes they did. I wish I knew more.
