Notes: The 1978 Penny had several errors for the year. Double Strikes (Double Struck) were somewhat common this year. Double strikes look something akin to two partial coins that have been smashed together. The 1978 penny also has an error where the Penny was struck on a Dime Planchet. This means the coin was struck on a copper nickel blend and not a copper blend. These tend to look like old dimes, with a penny face. Offcenter strikes were also common this year. Off center and Double Strikes can easily be confused. Off center strikes will have a blank crescent moon or flat area on the coin without detail.
How much is a 1978 D Penny worth?
This section is more of a layman's guide, for those new to collecting.
In Average Circulated (AC) condition it's worth around 1 cent, one in certified mint state (MS+) condition could bring as much as $9 at auction. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale. So when we say Average Circulated, we mean in a similar condition to other coins circulated in 1978, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. *** [?].
