Hi everyone. So I ended up with 4 foreign coins today. Found 2 in the reject tray of the coin counting machine when I was dumping halves. Found the other 2 when searching dime rolls. What I'd like to know is the metal content of the following coins:

Germany- 2 Pfennig- 1984

UK- Penny- 1994

Switzerland- 1/2 Franc- 1982

UK- 5 Pence- 2000

If anyone can help with this I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Germany- 2 Pfennig- 1984 bronze clad steel

UK- Penny- 1994 copper plated steel
Switzerland- 1/2 Franc- 1982 Copper-nickel

UK- 5 Pence- 2000 Copper nickel

Edit to add

there is a UK Proof penny 1994 mintage 1443 .925 silver

But I would think you know if your penny is one of those.

Come to the new and improved realcent:

That isn't bad though on a Swiss 1/2 Franc if you found it in a dime roll; it is worth more than a dime in exchange
