How much is a nickel worth?
With nickel at $61,714.41 per metric ton:

There are 1,000,000 grams in a metric ton

1,000,000 / 61714.41 = .06171441 dollars per gram

A nickel weighs 5 grams

.0617441 dollars x 5 grams = 30.857 cents

Check the math

Nickels are only 25 percent nickel. A nickel is worth a little over $.08

Nickel content depends on the year.
Same with pennies...pre 1980 or so have 3-4cents of copper.
Pre 1968 silver coins are about 70%silver

they were worth 8 cents before the price of nickel went up 160%, so now more like .20

Re: How much is a nickel worth?
The other 75% is copper. Currently 0.29 per ounce.

Makes the copper in a nickel, about 5*0.75=3.75gram
3.75/28=0.13oz (drug math)
0.13*0.29=0.038$

Then nickel is $36.299/lb
/16oz/28g = 0.081$ / gram
5*0.25=1.25g nickel
1.25*0.081=0.101$

Total for a nickel:
0.10+0.03=0.13

Did I do my math right?

Yep, copper content is worth 0.3 cents and nickel content is worth 0.4 cents currently.

Coinflation .com is a great website for coin information. It lists current market melt values for Gold, silver coins and base metal coins like nickel, copper and zinc. It breaks it down for each coin showing face value and current melt value. Also news articles regarding precious and semi precious metals.

Kitcometals .com/charts is another good site for metal values both current and historical. Besides silver and gold, they have charts for nickel, copper, zinc, aluminum and lead
