Is there a law prohibiting me from travelling out of the US with a certain amount of US coins?
If yes,
What is that amount?

I only know the one for cents. You are not allowed to take more than $5 in cents out side of the US. You should try to look up the other ones.

And don't ignore the possibility that there may be a limit as to how much you can take into another country.
Probably different around the world.

And once you get them into that country, can you get them back out?
Describe it as if there were no picture.

In the late 1990s I was once stopped by US Customs at Denver airport when I was flying back to England. I'd acquired quite a few US coins from circulation (mainly State Quarters plus some Kennedy halves from bank rolls) and they were in a plastic bag inside my rucksack. The staff member operating the X-ray machine asked me what the large metal object was. I said it was US coins I was saving for my collection, and pulled the bag out to show him. He just waved me through.

There is no limit I know of. I know you have to declare if you are traveling with $10,000 or more in cash. You should also pull out any rolls of coins at airport security otherwise they will probably inspect the contents of your carry on bag to see what all the metal is.

I think that there was a law which objective was to prevent the melting of copper coins to profit when copper was worth more than the cent's value.
These new cents are worthless if melted have little value. I assumed that this law had expired. Is there anyone here that is 100% sure on this matter ?

hmmm really there a law for coins, I thought he meant amount of money cause some countries require you to declare amount larger than 10K USD or equivalent. Maybe 10K in pennies hahaha I guess plane be broken then.

As mentioned $5 in cents, no limit on anything else, but if you are carrying over $10K worth you do need to declare it. They won't take the excess from you or tax it, but you do have to declare it. If you DON'T declare it and they find out then they will take it from you, all of it.

"Therefore, the exception provided for in the current regulation at section 82.2(a)(2) has been amended to reasonably accommodate these concerns by allowing exportation of 5-cent and one-cent coins having an aggregate face value of up to $25 when it is clear that the purpose for exporting such coins is for legitimate personal numismatic, amusement, or recreational use.
