We would save so much money dropping them like Canada just did, but the lobbyist keep bribing our congress to keep them in production.

I'm pretty sure Aluminum is worth more than Zinc. I think Zinc was chosen because its pretty much the least useful metal of them all.

I started keeping copper pennies years ago and now have many pounds of them. Interesting is that there is now a law that you cannot melt down or mass export the ZINC pennies as they are worth more as scrap metal than they are at face value.
