Does a penny conduct electricity?

Pennies are copper coated. Copper is used in most electrical wiring, so pennies are very good conductors of electricity. In the old days when houses had fuses instead of circuit breakers, people who blew fuses when all the stores were closed (we didn't have 24-hour supermarkets then) would sometimes put a penny under the burned-out fuse to get the circuit back in operation. Doing this sometimes led to a house fire--that fuse didn't blow because it felt like it but because there was a fault in the circuit, and putting the penny in there allowed unlimited current to flow. So don't do that.
