why EVERY copper penny is now worth at least 5 cents!

You’ll notice a smattering of copper-related information and discussion on my channel over the next while. I’m not any less interested in silver, gold, and other metals previously focused on, but copper has been interesting me increasingly over the past year or so. Learning more about topics like coinage, semi-precious metals, debasement, and changes in circulating currency can lead to a greater understanding of money and value, which is primarily what this channel is about.
