U.S. Mint Moves to Ban Penny Melting
By Quiana Burns

[EXCERPT]

Find a penny, pick it up, and all day you'll have good luck.

Find a penny, melt it, and you could get locked up.

Effective today, the U.S. Mint has implemented an interim rule that makes it illegal to melt nickels and pennies, or to export them in mass quantities.

With the soaring price of copper, a melted-down penny or nickel is now worth more than it would be in its regular state at face value.
