For the first time ever, the Philadelphia Mint struck 1¢ coins with “P” mint marks! Issued in 2017, these historic one-year-only coins honored the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Mint – established in Philadelphia in 1792. The landmark 2017-P Lincoln cents were quietly released into circulation in January that year. It wasn’t long before a sharp-eyed collector discovered one in North Carolina! These “P” mint mark cents were only issued during 2017 – cents struck at Philadelphia in 2018 and beyond are returning to their usual “no-mint-mark” format.
Now you can get a Gem Uncirculated example of this “must-have” collector issue that’s been graded by our experts and certified by NGC. Plus, each one is encapsulated with an exclusive label hand-signed by Lyndall Bass (designer of the cent’s Union Shield reverse). This unexpected surprise adds excitement to the hobby and gives collectors a historic one-year-only coin. Get your Gem 2017-P cent today!
