The Composition of the U.S. Cent (Penny)
For 48 school days beginning February 9, 2011, Arizona K-8 students can collect pennies to clean, reseal, and brighten the Copper Dome of Arizona's historic State Capitol. With pennies, copper, and the Grand Canyon State so linked together throughout history, we thought you would like to review this brief chronology of the metal composition of the one cent coin.
The Arizona Centennial Penny Drive is sponsored by the Arizona Centennial 2012 Foundation. Visit us on the web -- www.arizona100.org -- and Facebook.
