Just weighing it will tell you.
Zinc 2.5g
Copper 3.11g

...or an unorthodox way is to drop it on a countertop.

If it goes tick tick tick it's zinc.
If it goes ting ting ting it's copper.

99.9999% chance it is a zinc coin. Only a very few '82 D small dates have been found in bronze. Weight will verify as previously stated.

And do NOT drop any coins to check them for anything. Listening for ding or dang or anything just adds dents to coins.

You can make a popsicle stick scale. It's easy and fun! Google it. It works and is a great teaching tool.
