Monument for Arizona, The Copper State.

Copper State Monument

Arizona is nicknamed the "Copper State" as it is the largest producer of copper in the U.S. and has been for over 100 years. So it's a perfect tribute that the Arizona map on the monument is made of copper pennies.

[Drake Meinke, 09/18/2019]

Since 1983 the USA's pennies have been made of copper-plated zinc. This just in: Arizona also has a huge natural deposit of zinc!
