Hi folks..
Very very newbie coin collector from Canada. I came across what I believe is a 1934 Wheat penny with no mint mark. My understanding is that this means it was minted in Philly? Is there anything special about this coin or is that quite common? I don't know very much about coins to begin with. I know a bit about Canadian coins but not that much about American coins. Thanks for your time. Cheers.

Yes, no mintmark on a US cent means that it was struck in Philadelphia. None of the regular issue P-mint wheaties would be considered a key or semi-key, they are all pretty common in average circulated condition.

One exception is a 1922 with no mintmark which WAS NOT minted at Philly - it's a Denver coin that lacks a mintmark because of an error and is fairly valuable.
Rest in Peace

I'm a newbie too, (aboot a year) but I live down in the States. It's funny because I have learned quite a bit about US coins, but the Canadian stuff might as well be greek. Do you find many of the centennial (bicentennial?) canadian cents in canada? I found my second today- I save 'em.

the centennail coins are very cool. I have found several of the penny. The rest of the set: nickel, dime, quarter, etc are alot harder to find, at least that has been my limited experience. Cheers!
