Yellowish silver penny



(-----) 2007

Hi guys, my name is Ed and I collect coins. Recently I found a 1998 penny that was a yellowish-silver color. It appeared to have had the copper plating removed. In England they have had problems with the plating peeling or wearing off of pennies, but I have heard nothing of this sort on US coins. Can you tell me what's going on with this penny and how to duplicate it? Thanks, Ed Thornton

So many millions of pennies have been plated as promotional handouts, or plated by students and hobbyists, that the chance of finding a valuable rarity are about as good as finding a discarded lottery ticket that's a big winner, Ed. But I have some give-away pennies that were gold plated a few years ago and have now faded to that color, so that would be my first guess.
