Wondering if anyone has thoughts on this, I first heard about it on Colbert so there must be a fair amount of buzz out there...
Re: Nickel investing(hoarding?)
I am a member of the forums at www.realcent.org. I primarily concentrate on the copper pennies as they are currently valued at 300% of face (3 cents each) versus something not near that amount for nickels. You may try to look up current values at www.coinflation.com, but the site seems to be down as I write this.
On the other hand, the consensus seems to be that the composition of nickels will change this year to Aluminum or steel. If that happens, all the nickels currently in circulation will be pulled out.
