I'm rather tired of this prevalent fear-mongering when it comes to creative use of near-worthless coinage. As long as you aren't smelting nickels and pennies for profit, you don't have to worry about being hunted down by the Secret Service. An exception in 31CFR82.2 says that the pertinent reglations "shall not apply to the treatment of these coins for educational, amusement, novelty, jewelry, and similar purposes as long as the volumes treated and the nature of the treatment makes it clear that such treatment is not intended as a means by which to profit solely from the value of the metal content of the coins."
