    Hello again everyone! I was digging through my dad's collection of coins and I found this coin pictured.
    It is a 1909 VDB penny from the "New York" Mint. I know of the Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and Carson City (CC is no longer in use today) mints, but I've never heard of the New York Mint. I looked the mint up on the internet, but couldn't find anything on it. Has anyone else heard of this mint? If so, I would be interested to hear about it. The coin comes with a CoA

    From the CoA on the back it appears the New York Mint is (or was) a dealer or retailer of some sort.

    The New York Mint is a privatized company and is not affiliated with the US Mint or the department of Treasury

    Good to know josh's coins. Are these coins rarer than, or worth more than other coins?

    No the new York mint is a retail operation that sends out a real nice magazine with real high prices

    They are like Littleton, but worse. If that's possible.

    The above comments about the New York Mint are correct. The closest we came to having a mint in New York was in 1851 when legislation was introduced to open a branch mint there. I believe it passed in the Senate but died in the House.

    Don't forget the West Point mint
