When did you become acquainted with Copper?

wheat pennyI first became acquainted with Copper as a child. My grandmother and I would collect Copper pennies. Grandma told me to look for the pennies with the “wheat” ears on the back because they were all Copper; we even had a coin album to put them in. The mint no longer made “wheat” pennies and my grandmother knew these would someday be a prized possession. She was right! Today pennies are made of zinc coated with Copper.periodic table
