We offer two kinds of Pennies from Heaven.
The mixed pennies are all mixed years and have many different shades from dark to light. As pennies age and are exposed to elements like oxygen, they get a thin coating called a “patina” that is darker than the original color. Unlike rust, which actually destroys the metal underneath, this tarnish actually serves as a protective coating.
Current Year Pennies
However only the Current Year Pennies are brand new and shiny. We get them uncirculated from the US Mint and they are the nicest, shiniest, and brightest pennies we offer.
