    Five cent coin would be nickel. They are silver in color, not bronze. That picture looks like it is from one of the US mints most likely pressing pennies which are one cent coins.

    The only way they could get that many nickels is directly from a mint and I'm sure the mint would refuse. So yeah, completely unbelievable.

    It really isn't that funny considering this is the 100th time a "story" like this has been posted on a news site.

    You're right. It's not funny to you, it's not funny to anyone.

    I would send them a ton of checks in small increments so it would be PITA for them to get all the money.

    Closed thread, whilst it is amusing it is not Science & Technology, better off in GN TBH.
