In this experiment you take well cleaned pennies and turn them into pennies that are gold and silver! Extraordinary! However this experiment requires chemicals that are approximately $8-$10 and you need two of these chemicals. However, some of the materials you may not have such as a hot plate are a bit costly, and when I mean costly I mean like $300! When you have your result it should look completely different and unique so please continue with this experiment!

Step 1: The Materials!

These materials are chemicals that you can find at chemistry stores and some of these materials are everyday items. They are:

-Two small beakers(50ml, and 250ml)
-Hot Plate
-Zinc Sulfate, 100g
-Zinc Metal, Mossy, 100g
-Glass Stir Rod
-Tap Water
-Copper Pennies, Well Cleaned
Tried heating up a penny in the microwave when my parents weren't looking in hopes of a golden penny...<br><br><br>Didn't work out so well xD
<p>is real gold?</p>
<p>Why would you need a $ 300 hotplate to do this, a kitchen electric stove hotplate will do the job.</p>
<p>True, I should edit that.</p>
Can you still spend them?
<p>Yes you can still spend them.</p>
