Collecting Ultra Modern Major Mint Error Coins, 2002 - Present

indentIn the year 2002, the US Mint put in measures and machinery at all branches to sort out odd size and shaped error coins. The mint also started requiring the coin rolling companies to return misshaped errors the machines kick out while rolling coins for commerce. As a result, major mint error coins dated 2002 and beyond are extremely rare.

indentMany of the ultra modern major mint error coins are of normal size. The year 2007 was an exception as many large mint errors somehow got out of the Denver Mint. I have seen many oversized cent, nickel, dime, and quarter errors all dated 2007 D. I have owned late dated errors from other years that are larger than normal, but those are extremely rare. There are very few examples of major off center and multi stuck late dated coins.

indentThe vast majority of major error coins today that go through sorting and rolling machines and still get out are of normal size. We are looking for major strike thrus, major struck in material, missing clad layer, large clips, die adjustment strikes, struck on defective planchet errors, off metal errors, double denomination, struck on improperly annealed planchets among other major error types. There are many other types of less dramatic errors on these issues that just don’t have the eye appeal of the major error coins. Most of the ultra modern error coins are in mint state which is what modern error coin collectors prefer.

indentWhat I really like about the new issues are all of the different designs that have come out. The Statehood Quarter series, America The Beautiful Quarter series, 2004 and 2005 nickels, Sacagawea Dollars, and Presidential Dollars. A fun way to collect is to try to get a major mint error from each state of the Statehood Quarters. Do the same with the America The Beautiful Quarters, Presidential Dollars, or different Sacagawea Dollar reverses.

indentMajor errors on Shield Cents are very hard to find, almost non existent. I have handled a few multi struck, a die adjustment strike, and a few extreme die fill Shield Cent Error Coins. I do not think it would be possible to put together a date set of major errors on Shield Cents as there are no known major errors on many of the dates.

indentMany collectors look to the older issues for rare major mint errors because it’s a series that they collect and perceived rarity. Many of the classic error coins are circulated as they were not keep in mint state when found. In reality, major error coinage from 2002 until present are much rarer than pre 2002 issues.

indentCollecting ultra modern mint error coins is fascinating because there are so many different designs and error types possible. It is even possible to find some of these error types in unsearched rolls and bags or even proof and mint sets. Collecting ultra modern major mint error coins is open ended since you can search new designs and dates as they come out for unique error coinage.
