## 2011-D Penny Value

The 2011 Lincoln penny with “D” mintmark is another common coin. The “D” mint mark indicates that this 2011 penny was struck at the Denver Mint — which produced 2,536,140,000 of these coins that year.

Since 2011-D pennies are so common, they’re worth face value if worn — just 1 cent for the typical example you’re likely to find in pocket change.

However, as with the 2011 no mint mark penny from the Philadelphia Mint, uncirculated specimens of the 2011-D penny are worth much more:

• A typical unworn example in mint condition is worth 10 to 30 cents.

## 2011 Lincoln Penny Errors List

Not all pennies are perfect. Chances are you’ve come across plenty of coins that appear to have some pretty odd things going on with them.

Most of the time, the things on a coin that may appear to be errors are really just signs of post-mint damage — which detracts from the coin and contributes to lowering its value.

However, there are some legit errors and varieties worth looking for that are quite valuable, too!

### Here are some 2011 penny errors to look for:

• 2011 Doubled Die Penny – The 2011 doubled die pennies are very hard to find. They don’t present as dramatically as the popular and valuable Lincoln penny doubled dies like those from 1955 and 1972. Nonetheless, 2011 doubled die pennies can be worth anywhere from $25 to$50… or more.
• 2011 Off-Center Penny – Looking for an off-center 2011 shield penny is worth your effort. Finding one that’s worth a lot of money can be difficult, but if you’ve got one that’s about 50% off center and still shows a complete date the payday could bring $100 or more. Even off-center pennies that are 10% or 20% askew are worth$5 to $10 and up. • 2011 BIE Penny – Here’s a weird type of Lincoln cent error in which a short, vertical die break between the letters “B” and “E” in the inscription “LIBERTY” on the obverse sometimes looks like a capital letter “I.” These so-called BIE pennies are very much sought after, and collectors will gladly pay$5 to \$10 apiece for these pennies.
