2008 is magnetic, there was no non-magnetic versions for that year.

Not sure it there is a mule but I have not heard of one currently.

If you manage to find a non-magnetic 2008 cent it probably would be fairly rare because it would be considered a mule. Not exactly sure why they dident make a magnetic and non-magnetic version for 2008.

From 2002 to 2007 the mint struck magnetic and non magnetic versions, they skipped 2008 and only minted magnetic versions, then in 2009 to 2012 they once again struck both magnetic and non magnetic versions so I can see where one may get confused.

I was assuming that the OP was referring to circulation strikes while roll hunting, and not proof strikes.

mice45 is correct that 2008 proof sets have a non-magnetic penny, 2008 circulation pennies do not.

I just learned about the proof strike a couple days ago myself through reading old threads on here! Currently bidding on the 2008 proof right now for my collection!
