2012-D Lincoln Shield Cent

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

It is only October and I just found the Denver version of our penny. These new one cent coins are circulating well despite the call to have them removed from our monetary system. Still it is not that special and with over two billion in circulation they are not that valuable.


According to Mint News Blog, a great blog about everything U.S. Mint related, the production is on the upswing for all U.S. coins. The increase is very noticeable if you still use money. The new cents make up the majority of all the minted coins followed up by nickels. Large coins are still not a priority for the mint or the public.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent  / United States
Year: 2012-D
Mintage: 2,241,200,000 (estimated to date)
Metal: 97.5% Zinc, 2.5% Copper
Value: $0.01 in EF-40

What is that small horizontal line on top of the bill?
--That is the cutting mark, it was used as a visual guide to let the cutter no exactly where to cut the bill to normal size.

This bill was Miscut but it was a common error for all the 1950s notes.

What is the value of it?
--About $12.00 the error does not add any extra value.
