Did the 2012 cents circulate?

Recommended Posts

I think most ended up getting hoarded by collectors and dealers, and that the mintage for 2011 might have been huge - the only time I received a 2012 cent in change was in mid-December.


Throughout the year I'd received tons of BU 2011's.


One local dealer was buying rolls of 2012 1c for $5-6 and selling for $8-10.

I have gotten several of the copper plated zincs from 2010-11. I have only found one copper plated steel from 2012 so far. I believe they were released through normal channels but a lot of them were bought up and not a lot of them made it to circulation like mine did. I live close enough to the border that I tend to get Canadian coins before I find new USA coins.
