The Copper Bullion Melt Value Calculator, located below, will help you find the total
copper value of an individual copper round, bar, or ingot; or of several different
types and quantities of copper items. The copper value is based on the total weight
of copper content. The copper calculator will only calculate what the copper metal is
worth (intrinsic value), and will not determine any collectible value of your bullion.
Use the copper calculator to determine how much your copper bullion is worth, or to
decide what you are willing to pay based on the spot price for a pound of copper.
You could also try out other calculators from the drop-down menu
above. If your copper is in the form of U.S. pennies, then use the
U.S. Copper Penny Melt Value Calculator. There is also a
Canadian Copper Penny Melt Value Calculator, and for copper scrap, the
Scrap Copper Melt Value Calculator.

How to use the Copper Melt Value Calculator.
Enter the total amount of rounds, bars or ingots for each copper item, based on its
actual copper weight. Enter your numbers in the text boxes located directly to the
right of that item's corresponding unit of weight. As an alternative, you can
simply click on that row's copper weight image, or its link, to increment the
value of its text box by 1. The calculator will automatically update the Total
Copper Value (in red), whenever a change is made to the number of copper items.
The Total Copper Value is computed based on the U.S. Dollar amount shown in the
Copper Price text box. You could also use one of the other currencies
available in the drop-down menu located underneath the prices. The
default price is updated frequently during normal trading hours. The Copper Price
can be changed to reflect the price you're wanting to pay per pound for the
copper contained in any combination of copper items. This will help you to determine
the maximum bid you could submit for an online copper bullion auction.
In addition to the Total Copper Value (in red), the copper calculator will also
figure a Bid and Ask price based on the amount displayed in the Price Spread text
box. This amount defaults to 5%, but can be changed if you like. The copper Bid and
Ask prices are shown in the lower section of the copper results box, for those who
would like to use them.
If your copper item is alloyed with another metal, you can use the Bullion Purity
text box to adjust accordingly. Simply enter the item's percentage of pure copper
by weight, and all resultant values will be multiplied by that percentage value.
The copper calculator figures total copper value and total copper weight related to
the amount of copper content in items that have no wear from handling. A copper round
or bar that does indicate some wear will not have as much copper. You may want to
enter a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. A value
larger than the default of 0 (zero), will adjust the total copper value and total
copper weight results accordingly.
