    2017 Cents to Have "P" Mint Mark

    Just when I thought the Shields couldn't get any uglier.

    At least they could have hand punched it on the working die so we might have gotten some RPM's out of it. LOL Still, I'm looking forward to seeing the new coin.

    Thanks Jody for the scoop. At least the Mint is trying to do something interesting with the somewhat boring looking Shield Cent Hope someday they bring the Memorial's back!!

    I was just having a convo with my better half the other night about mint marks. She asked, "Why wouldn't they make a P for Philadelphia too?"...

    It's all her fault.

    With some impressive DD coming out of the Philadelphia mint these past few years, it will be fun seeing one this year with the mint mark.

    Are they going to put the mint mark on the reverse ?

    No. It's in the normal spot and only for one year.

    I wish they would put a big, fat *** "P" right across the shield.
