Where Did 2009 Go?

Do you have a cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment

I have kept records of most coins I find but these records are far from organized. So currently I don't know which 2009 coins I found in my change. I'm sure I got most of them but I often skip posting them so I have no visual record.

That said here are the last two cents from 2009, I just recently got them in my change. It may be long time before I start seeing any 2010 U.S. coins. The third and fourth Lincoln sets in the Lincoln aspect series depict his political life.


Professional Life in Illinois (1830-1861)
This one has been out for a while so with oxidation and circulation the one I found was a bit dingy.

Presidency in Washington, D.C. (1861-1865)
These are the last two pictured above are very shiny. I think a new roll was opened since I got six of in my change. I kept them all since they had minimum wear and marks.

Design are very similar and kind of boring, especially if you think what Lincoln did throughout those years.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent (Aspect 3) / United States
Year: 2009
Mintage: 316,000,000 (estimated)
Metal: 97.5% Zinc, 2.5% Copper
Value: $0.01 in VF-20


Type/Country: 1 Cent (Aspect 4) / United States
Year: 2009
Mintage: 129,600,000 (estimated)
Metal: 97.5% Zinc, 2.5% Copper
Value: $0.01 in VF-20

Note the low production numbers for the Philadelphia 2009 Lincoln Cent Presidency Design, 129,600,000 is very low. Granted 1,106,000,000 Philadelphia cents were made in all but even this number is low compared to every year since the 1960s. Will this lead to a premium in the future, I doubt it but if the composition of the metal changes it just may.

Do you have a cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Question: I have a 1996 $20.00 bill that is missing the green circle stamp over the word 'Twenty' on the front. All other parts of bill are there. Serial No: AC47656063B - rare? worth about $20? I did notice it has none of those random stamps from places marking/checking money. It does have a crease mark down the middle, but has been in a plastic case flattened and cared for, for several years. Pretty good condition, obviously circulated, As I pulled it when I was counting money, and noticed it was irregular, when I saw what it was I bought it from the till. Bank verified it was not counterfeit, They wanted it, but we kept it. Thanks. I don't know how to upload a picture, but I could email it, or send instructions... but you prob know exactly what I'm talking about. I found none on Ebay currently. (no pun intended) You seem like the most helpful site. Thanks!
