How helpful... Couldn't I just paint them and save myself a lot of time?

I did something like that in school last year but it was a single/double replacement lab.

That in no way looks like gold.

"However, the gold and the silver and not pure; meaning the gold penny is equivalent to fool's gold."

What?!?

"First off I doubt anybody has those chemicals laying around there house. Also I doubt anybody has a bunsen burner, ring stand, wire gauze, tongs or beakers laying around... Long story short, Don't try this at home"

i have all of these things.... and who needs bunsen burner? fire is fire. and doesn't everyone have drano?

It is illegal to deface any mint in the United States. High school lessons are exceptions, but you'd be stupid to start mass producing gold pennies in your home. End of story.

Ah, simple chemistry involving Sing and Double Replacement of chemicals within a compound. Nothing new, can be done with hundreds of things.

i just did this a couple of weeks ago in my chem class and still have the penny. :) Make sure to have either a new penny or clean it with steel wool or else it will be sorta gunky looking rather than clean gold

ooo wow that's just so awesome. psht whatever. Yeah this is real stuff, I did this earlier this year in Chemistry. If y'all try that though, don't rub the silver (zinc) ones too much, cause that takes the zinc off. But yeah. Cool that someone posted this. AND it's not illegal to do this, my teacher even said, it's just illegal to use them as anything more than a penny.
