1943 Steel US Penny The 1943 silver-colored penny was a special wartime issue made of steel and coated with zinc. During the Second World War copper was badly needed to make shell casings. In response to the wartime demand for copper, pennies that year were made of steel. They are not great rarities, though. These coins are generally worth about 12 to 15 cents apiece in circulated condition, and as much as 50 cents or more if uncirculated.
