Nearly 25% of Chinese stocks have stopped trading
CNN Money

"The turmoil in China's stock market is so bad that some companies are calling it quits. Over 700 Chinese companies have halted trading to "self preserve," according to the state media. That means about a quarter of the companies listed on China's two big exchanges -- the Shanghai and Shenzhen -- are no longer trading. China's stock markets are in trouble. The Shanghai Composite Index has fallen over 25% since mid-June. The Shenzhen, which has more tech companies and is often compared to America's Nasdaq Index, is down even more."

United States Circulating Coin Values
This table does not reflect U.S. Mint production costs, but the pure base metal value that composes the coin. Calculations are based on coin weight, metal composition, and base metal prices. The "Metal % of Face Value" column represents the percentage of metal that comprises the denomination's purchasing power. A coin that is over 100% in this category has more base metal value than purchasing power.

Table based on July 07, 2015 mid-day base metal prices:
Copper $2.4431/lb down 0.0912 Zinc $0.8907/lb down 0.0198 Nickel $4.8534/lb down 0.4183

Description Face Value Metal Value Metal % of Face Value
Lincoln Copper Cent1909-1982 Cent (95% copper) *
Jefferson Nickel1946-2014 Nickel
Lincoln Zinc Cent1982-2014 Cent (97.5% zinc) *
Roosevelt Dime1965-2014 Dime
Washington Quarter1965-2014 Quarter
Kennedy Half Dollar1971-2014 Half Dollar
Ike Dollar1971-1978 Eisenhower Dollar
Susan B. Anthony Dollar1979-1981, 1999 SBA Dollar
Sacajawea Dollar2000-2014 Sacagawea Dollar
Presidential Dollar2007-2014 Presidential Dollar

* The U.S. Mint issued both compositions in 1982; they can be differentiated by weight (3.11 g copper, 2.5 g zinc). The 1943 steel cent is not included in the table above. Also, a tin alloy is used in one cent pieces from 1864 until 1962, but that value isn't significant enough to calculate.

United States Circulated Silver Coin Values - Updated Every Minute
These coins were in standard circulation until silver was removed from all coinage in 1965 and 1970 (40% silver half-dollars). I recognize that the silver Eisenhower dollar was issued as a collectible only, but I'm still categorizing it with this group. This table illustrates how far the metal value has progressed compared to the denomination's purchasing power after the debasement.

Silver Eagle1986-2013 Silver Eagle (.999 Silver)

** The U.S. Mint issued two compositions of the nickel in 1942. The copper-nickel composition used today and the 35% silver composition listed here.
*** The 40% silver version of the Eisenhower dollar was issued as a collectible only, they are generally not found in circulation. The best way to distinguish the two versions is by weight. The copper-nickel version weighs 22.68 grams, the silver Ike dollar weighs 24.59 grams.
