The Canadian Copper Penny Melt Value Calculator, located below, will help you find the
total copper value and total copper content of your pre-1997 Canadian copper cents.
The Canadian copper penny calculator only shows what the copper metal in your Canadian
pennies is worth (intrinsic value), and will not indicate any numismatic (collector)
value, nor any value from the small amounts of tin and zinc in those pennies.
Use the Canadian copper cent calculator to learn the copper bullion value of your
Canadian pennies, or in determining what to pay for a lot of Canadian copper pennies.
You might also try one of the other calculators from the drop-down menu above.
For U.S. copper pennies, use the

How to use the Canadian Copper Penny Melt Value Calculator.
Enter the total quantity of pennies for each type of Canadian penny in the entire coin lot.
Enter your numbers in the corresponding text boxes to the right of each penny description
(blue link). As an alternative, you can simply click on the penny's picture, or its
link, to increase the value in 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 pennies.
The Total Copper Value is tallied based on the U.S. Dollar amount displayed in the Copper
Price text box. You could also select Canadian Dollars or one of the other
currencies available in the drop-down menu located underneath the prices. The default copper
price is updated frequently during normal trading hours. The copper price can be adjusted
to represent how much you would be willing to pay per pound for the copper contained in any
stockpile of Canadian pennies. This will help you in finding the maximum bid you might enter
for an online Canadian copper penny auction.
In addition to the Total Copper Value (in red), the Canadian penny calculator will also
figure a Bid and Ask price based on the value displayed in the Price Spread text box. This
value defaults to 5%, but can be changed if you wish. The copper Bid and Ask prices are shown
in the lower tier of the copper results box, for those who have an interest in them.
The Canadian penny calculator shows the total copper value and total copper content derived
from the amount of copper contained in uncirculated Canadian pennies that have no wear. If
your pennies have some wear due to circulation, they will not contain as much copper. You
could insert a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. An amount
larger than the default of 0 (zero), will reduce the total copper value and total copper
weight results accordingly.
