Financial Tip

Mint marks show which minting facility coins come from -

  • "P" for Philadelphia;
  • "D" for Denver; and,
  • "S" for San Francisco.

This mark is found to the right of the subject's face on the obverse side of each circulating coin-with the exception of the "Philadelphia" Lincoln cent, which has no mint mark.
