Do you have a cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment
Well almost half way through the year and I have found my first 2012 cent. The 2012 El Yunque quarter was easy to get back in early February. Since then no other 2012 coins have made their way to me. From all the articles I read and other bloggers the 2012 coins are circulating well.
Best part is that I found this new cent at a bus stop, of course waiting for a bus. It was just on the ground all shiny and new while people just passed it by.
Bus stops are good places to find coins since people may run for the bus and drop their change all the time. I have found many coins at bus stop and other transitional places. Hint for all you coin hunters. A transitional place is where one place meets another like doorways, street curbs, and under a car door. People tend to drop stuff from these spots and usually do not pick up the pennies...or used tissues so be careful.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Mintage: 2,532,000,000 (estimated to date)
Metal: 97.5% Zinc, 2.5% Copper
Value: $0.01 in EF-40
