Hello,

I found a 2011 Penny that has some weird texture to it on both the obverse and reverse of the coin.

Can anyone explain what this is and what might have caused it.

Thanks,

Jim

Well the lines are called rolling lines. The machine that made the zinc material, had to roll out the zinc to make it flat. These lines are seen on the planchets before and after the strike:

With the light is set at a lower angle when you take images, it creates shadows that show up in the coins images. The lines are usually not seen on coins until the BU look goes away on the copper/silver/nickel coins.





Also see on clad coins as well.
But the plating on the zinc makes them stand out even more. No premium for these as all of them have it. (No one else notices it, but us)

You say they all have it but this is the only coin I have seen this on in the current batch I am looking at.
