because as the dollar loses value precious and base metals will hold the same purchasing power. if inflation drives the price of milk up to 50.00 a gallon the same 3.50 face have of the nickels will be worth about 50.00 bucks its a hedge on inflation. depending on which metal and how much you can buy food or invest later check out my vid

well it has the same strengths and weeknesses of silver, if high inflation levels hit the U.S. it would be due to other countries dumping the dollar and they come back to the U.S. you are correct that the price would drop if there was a large supply in the market, but it would climb again as others buy to invest at a lower price and drive it back higher again, because thought is the Dollar will weaken and fall against other currecies that are relatively stable in purchasing power foreigners very well might buy up copper and other tanganble goods after the world realizes the value of metals to fiat currency. During hyper inflation you spend money fast before it losses value, so there could be a rising supply, but in the U.S. demand for copper may rise even faster than suppy increasing the price regardless, I would hedge till you need to buy something that might spoil like milk or meat. If a currency can drop by the hour in hyper inflation its much better to hold or buy copper in that situation till you need it than hold dollars. Plus only a small amount of pennies are copper and there have been no real major discoveries of copper in about 100 years so it is rare and the rest of the world will need it as there living standard rise regardless of inflation it the U.S. However I believe silver is the best metal. for what we forgot to prep, if when supplies run out or for future investment.
