I bet I put more copper in wiring in a single building than a whole year worth of penny minting consumes. I think they are only made of 2% copper... it may be propping up the zinc market though :) ... and yeah unfortunately 118M might seem like a lot to us but it isn't... the war will blow through that in about an hour... 118M is about 3 thousandths of one percent of our yearly budget. They would probably spend ten times that doing a study on whether or not they should discontinue the penny.
