There are so many 2007 pennies in circulation that you probably don’t give a second thought to them when you see them in your change.
But did you know some 2007 pennies are worth more than face value? A lot more than face value!
You might have a 2007 penny worth $100, $200, or even more!
So, how can you tell if you have a valuable 2007 penny or a regular one?
I’m going to show you exactly what features you should be looking for on your 2007 pennies…
2007 Penny No Mint Mark Value
The 2007 Lincoln penny with no mint mark was struck at the Philadelphia Mint to the tune of 3,762,400,000 pieces. That’s a lot of pennies — more than 3.76 billion with a “B“!
While the 2007 penny may be a common coin, that doesn’t mean it’s unworthy of a collector’s attention.
Here’s how much a 2007 no mint mark penny is worth:
- Worn specimens of regular 2007 pennies straight from pocket change are worth just 1 cent.
- An uncirculated 2007 penny (like you might find appearing brand new in rolls or bags of pennies) are worth an average of 10 to 20 cents each.
- And get this… The most valuable 2007 penny every sold was graded MS67RD by third-party grader Professional Coin Grading Service and took $230 in a 2008 auction. How about that?
2007-D Penny Value
Did you find a 2007 penny with a “D” mint mark?
That 2007-D penny was made at the Denver Mint, which placed a “D” mintmark on its 2007 pennies.
All 2007-D pennies are, like their Philly counterparts, pretty common. In fact, a total of 3,638,800,000 (nearly 3.64 billion) pennies were minted at the Denver Mint in 2007.
Here’s how much a 2007-D penny is worth:
- Like the 2007 pennies with no mintmark, the 2007-D penny is extremely common and hence worth only 1 cent in worn condition.
- Uncirculated 2007-D pennies (which appear to have just left the mint) are typically worth 10 to 20 cents apiece.
- The most valuable 2007-D penny is worth many thousands of times its face value! One example graded MS67RD by Professional Coin Grading Service fetched a whopping $431 in a 2008 sale.
2007 Satin Finish Penny Value
In 2007, the United States Mint issued collector sets of coins that includes one special version of each type of circulating coin made that year. Among these were the 2007 pennies, reproduced for the collector set in a deluxe satin finish — which looks more matte in appearance than the usual pennies that were struck for circulation.
The 2007 satin finish pennies made at the Philadelphia Mint have no mint mark and were included only in 2007 mint sets. (They were not released by the mint into circulation.)
Here’s how much a 2007 satin finish penny with no mintmark is worth:
- A total of 895,628 of the 2007 satin pennies were made, in proportion with the total number of 2007 mint sets that were sold by the U.S. Mint. These sets were issued at $22.95 each and are now worth around $18 to $22.
- A typical 2007 satin Lincoln penny is worth $1 to $2.
- The record price for the most valuable the most valuable 2007 satin finish penny is $253, which was paid in 2008 for an example graded SP69 by Professional Coin Grading Service.
2007-D Satin Finish Penny Value
The 2007-D satin finish Lincoln pennies from the Denver Mint were included in the 2007 mint set alongside the 2007 satin pennies from the Philadelphia Mint.
The same number of 2007 and 2007-D satin finish pennies were made for the 2007 mint set. Hence, the 2007-D penny mintage stood at 895,628 — the same as for the 2007 no mintmark satin finish penny.
Here’s how much a 2007-D satin finish penny is worth:
- A 2007-D satin finish penny of typical quality is worth $1 to $2.
- The most valuable 2007-D satin finish penny was graded SP69 by Professional Coin Grading Service and took $403 in a 2008 sale.
2007-S Penny Value
The 2007-S Lincoln penny was made expressly for collectors as a proof coin.
Struck at the San Francisco Mint and bearing its “S” mintmark under the date on the coin, the 2007-S penny was made using polished blanks that were intentionally struck twice using specially prepared dies on high-tonnage presses to ensure that even the smallest details are strong.
Modern proof coins boast frosty designs and lettering that pops against deeply mirrored fields (the unadorned flat surfaces of a coin).
The U.S. Mint struck 2,577,166 of these 2007-S pennies — all of which were included in proof sets and other special offerings for coin collectors.
Here’s how much a 2007-S penny is worth:
- A typical 2007-S penny trades for around $2 to $5.
- The most valuable 2007-S penny to ever sell was graded PR70DCAM by Professional Coin Grading Service and fetched $188 in a 2011 auction.

Valuable 2007 Error Pennies To Look For
There are many kinds of rare and valuable 2007 penny errors and varieties worth money!
Here’s a short list of 2007 Lincoln penny errors that you should be looking for:
- 2007 doubled die penny — The 2007 doubled die pennies are very hard to find but are also among the rarest and most valuable 2007 penny errors you’ll likely encounter. While there are no known 2007 doubled dies with drastic doubling errors, there are many minor and more obscure 2007 doubled die pennies that are worth searching for! These have values ranging anywhere from $20 to $100 or more — depending on the individual demand for and scarcity of a particular variety. The prime areas on the coin to find doubling are in Lincoln’s eye, bowtie, Lincoln Memorial columns, and lettering.
- 2007 off-center penny — Now here’s a drastic error! The 2007 off-center pennies are missing part of their design. This is caused when the coin isn’t properly seated and positioned in the right spot between dies or the dies themselves are out of alignment. The coin may be missing anywhere from 1% to 99% of its design due to it having been struck off center, and values are generally in proportion with the amount of design missing. However, the most valuable type of off-center 2007 penny is missing about half of its design yet still reveals a full date. Such pieces are worth $50 to $100.
- 2007 BIE penny — There’s a peculiar type of variety in which there appears to be a capital letter “I” between the letters “B” and “E” of “LIBERTY” on the 2007 penny. However, this is no misspelling! Rather, the capital “I” is really just a raised line caused by a die crack — a break in the die brought about by aging and overuse. Dies can crack virtually anywhere and manifest at just about any size. But when die cracks are large, prominent, or they create unusual or interesting patterns on a coin, they can become especially valuable collectibles! In the case of BIE pennies, these are very much in demand by collectors but are common enough that prices aren’t too bad. A typical 2007 BIE penny ranges in value from around $5 to $15, depending on condition.
