    Here's what the reverse of the new penny looks like. No more Lincoln Memorial pennies. Unless they quit making the pennies, which costs more than a penny to make, this is what the back of the penny will look like from now on. The US Mint released them for circulation today so you will start seeing them pop up in your change before much longer.

    OHH I will give you the honors for the biggest:)

    I just have a couple of quart jars full of old coins. Mostly old silver ones, I think I have a fair condition 1911 (d)? Mercury dime.
    As I recall last time I checked about 20 years ago that was likely my most valuable one. Most are just interesting and slightly valuable. I was always partial to the standing/walking liberty coins.

    I am giving them to my Baby sister as she seems interested in coin collecting.

    I have a lot of copins that I have collected and purchased through the years. I had 2 complete penny collections complete with 1909-S vdb, and the 1931-S. Had them in a safe, and some illegals broke in and stole the damn safe. They caught the mexicans, and got my safe back...but the collections were gone.
    I keep the coins in a safe deposit box now. I have mostly PCGS graded silver dollars.

    When my grandfather passed away, he left behind several fruit cake tins full of coins. A lot of very old pennies and nickles, including a couple of very nice 1909S-VDBs. My brother is the keeper of the collection - and he'd better not lose it!
