Find a 1995 penny in your pocket change? Wondering what your 1995 penny value is today?

Well, you better check your 1995 pennies twice… you might have a 1995 doubled die penny worth much more than face value!

How do you know if you have a 1995 error penny?

I’m going to tell you what to look for on your 1995 pennies to see if you have the 1995 penny error (a 1995 doubled die penny) or one of a handful of other valuable 1995 pennies worth more than face value.

How To Tell If You Have A 1995 Doubled Die Penny

The 1995 doubled die penny is perhaps the most popular type of 1995 penny — and the last of a breed of popular doubled die pennies.

To check if your 1995 penny is a doubled die coin, do this:

  • Inspect the inscriptions on the obverse (“heads side”) of the coin.
  • The inscriptions IN GOD WE TRUST and LIBERTY show signs of doubling on the 1995 doubled die penny.

When the 1995 doubled die penny was first discovered, the media grabbed ahold of the story and it quickly became one of the most popular error coins around.

Many 1995 doubled die pennies were worth more than $300 soon after this variety was first discovered — but there were also fewer known examples then.

It’s now believed that as many as 500,000 examples of the 1995 doubled die cent may exist. While it’s no longer considered a rare coin, this doubled die penny nevertheless is worth more than face value — with many of them selling for upwards of $20.

Good news: You can find 1995 doubled die pennies in your pocket change!

Other 1995 Penny Values

Maybe you don’t have a 1995 doubled die penny, but that doesn’t mean your regular 1995 pennies are necessarily worth only face value.

While worn (circulated) 1995 pennies without errors or varieties are only worth 1 cent, an uncirculated or proof 1995 penny is worth significantly more than face value!

Here’s what uncirculated and proof 1995 pennies are worth:

  • 1995 no mintmark penny (Philadelphia) — 6,411,440,000 minted, worth 10 to 25+ cents
  • 1995-D penny (Denver) — 7,128,560,000 minted, worth 10 to 25+ cents
  • 1995-S proof penny (San Francisco) — 2,797,481 minted, worth $3+

*Values above are for uncirculated and proof 1995 cents. Circulated 1995 pennies with no errors or varieties are worth face value.
