In 2017 to celebrate the mints 225th anniversary a P mint mark was added to the obverse of the penny for the first time ever. This makes this coin very unique and worth holding onto. This is the only Lincoln Cent ever to have a P struck into its face. This may make this penny a semi-key date to future collectors.
Being relatively new the 2017 P Shield Cent is readily available in many of the higher ranges of mint state. MS66, MS67, and sometimes MS68 are all relatively affordable. As always look for the RD designation. A RD 2017 P Shield Penny will be worth about 20 to 30% more than one that is RB (Red Brown), and a RB will be worth more than a Brown (BN).
How much is a 2017 P Shield 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 $3 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 2017, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. *** [?].
