Wherever you get it make sure to buy C110 alloy if your making water blocks or cold-plates. There are probably other alloys that would be fine to, I just know C110 is almost pure and is what most guys use for blocks.

C110 is what I ordered, glad I chose the right stuff.

A simple propane torch can melt pennies but they are no longer made from copper. Its also not illegal to melt them since they are your property while you have them in your possession.

And even the old pennies weren't 100% pure copper.

Onlinemetals is a tad expensive, especially for small cuts of metal. You may get lucky locally and get some scrap from a fabricator shop.
