DIY Investment (Survival Cointainer)
Coin roll containing pre 1983 pennies

As a hedge against economic, political or social crisis, investors are often advised to purchase precious metals. In the recent investment craze, gold gets all the attention – why not copper? Pennies minted before 1983 contain 95% copper and can be easily stockpiled in Survival Coin-tainers®. Even in situations where currency loses acceptance, copper retains its value.
