Not interested in the copper, but I do keep an eye out for old silver. Basically most silver coins made before 1964 are 90% silver. 11 dimes is an ounce, so with silver at 32 or more per ounce, a dime is generically worth 3 bucks at melt value if it is not worth more as a coin collectors want. If you get the older ones, (Barber "Liberty Head" dimes are 1892-1916, Mercury dimes were 1916-1945, Standing libert quarters were 1916-1930, and Frankline half dollars were good up to 1973), you can collect very nice numismatic value as well. I see these coins regularly in my change at the end of the day. All you have to do is hit the ATM (at your bank so you you dont get hit a fee) and pay cash when you buy things, these are out there in direct circulation.

They should get rid of the penny and the paper dollar.  Then the spot in most cash register tills reserved for pennies can hold dollar coins instead.

 

I wonder if I can go through that giant jug of pennies I have and sort out all the pre-1982 ones (95% copper).  They're worth 2.5 cents apiece right now, melt price!

It is faster to do it by weight as the copper ones are heavier.

Has anyone seen the report that they are testing an ATM machine that will dispense all denominations of currency.  If you just want $7.00 for a latte, then that is all one has to ask for $7.00.  I forgot the bank, Chase possibly, but apparently there are customers who seem to like the idea of an ATM dispensing all denomination of US currency.

I'm thinking Chase likes charging a fee each time you use the card. Take out $50, pay one fee, spend it where you want.

Take out $7 here, $10 there, $8 over here, pay three fees, you and Chase are very happy.

I have seen them that will so any denomination of bill. Why bother with coins? Is it really that hard to round up to the next dollar?

No offense, HC, but don't you work for that barely making it company called Exxon?

 

Might have a little Pot/Kettle action going on here.

 

And since when are banks or oil companies the bad guys?

Bank is a 4 letter word still in the public world..  Oil is close behind.  And since gasoline has spiked about 40 cents locally lately, it's becoming a bolded 4 letter word.

 

But, I don't think we charge any ATM fees.  :angel:  :2funny:   At least not for customers.  :coolsmiley:

 

But hey, I don't work retail.

Should be about $120 - $150 at the half full point and weigh around 100 pounds according to some numbers I've seen.  Hope you don't have to roll them all for the bank to accept them when the time comes

Cool idea, but may be the most uncomfortable and labor intensive floor ever.

To make it THE most uncomfortable you would have to sprinkle in some

thumbtacks with the pennies when making the tiles...
