Look for these Valuable Pennies!

Look for these Valuable Pennies!
The US Mint made a pretty big mistake for 3 consecutive years! In 1998, 1999, and 2000, the US Mint inadvertently used the Proof reverse die on some of their business strike pennies. This made these coin worth much more than face value as mint mistakes are rare.
The most rare is the 1999 Penny, with the 1998 and 2000 pennies being less rare. That being said, all three have great value, even in circulated grades. It is not uncommon to find these years in circulation in mid-high mint state condition. The one I found was an MS65 and was the 2nd most rare of the 3!
Here's the video where I found this one (although I have found many!):

  1. Nice coins. I’ve been lucky enough to find all three different varieties. I’m still looking for the 92 close am.

    1. I’ve gone through 2 bags of $50 each and a box of $25. That’s like 12,500 pennies and not one WAM or CAM. And that was just in the month of November, they are hard to find. Just because there is a gap between the A and M, doesn’t mean it’s a WAM, you also have to look at the placement of the FG and some other factors

  2. Should’ve went over how to find them. Just because there is a gap between the A and the M, doesn’t mean it’s a true WAM, you also have to look at the FG placement, and a couple other things for it to be a true WAM

    1. Agreed, BUT it’s hard to fit it all in with just under a minute allowed for shorts. That being said, I have several videos where I cover the topic more in depth during my penny hunts.

    2. @RobFindsTreasure I get it. Just sucks when you are new to coin hunting and think you found one only to be told you didn’t

  3. I’m sure such pennies may be worth $120 to _somebody,_ but it ain’t me. If you need a magnifying glass and Powerpoint demonstration to illustrate the “error” it just ain’t _dramatic_ enough to trip my interest trigger. However, having now been well hammered and tenderized with oodles of daily shorts about such random errors and varieties in my feed, I do now wonder if there might be some nifty guide out there for the ready reference of those approaching their overflowing change jars…something arranged date-by-date and coin-by-coin, like some birdwatcher’s field guide. ‘Cause practically _nobody_ is gonna remember all these quirks.

    1. I don’t know if you’re being sarcastic or not but there is a book detailing all the valuable errors. Strike It Rich.

  4. I love that you wrote it down like that and showed the pennies so it’s easily screenshottable for people. That’s awesome and very considerate! Thank you! 👍
