It did not take as long to find a 2010 coin in pocket change this year as it did to find a 2009 coin last year. After going to my favorite coffee place, I noticed a very bright Lincoln Cent amongst the change. When I put my cup down to add a little non-fat milk, I reached into my pocket and found it was one of the new sheild cents. With the exception of the fingerprint on the obverse (it could be mine), the coin looks like it just came from the U.S. Mint.
As we progress further into 2010, I am seeing a lot of 2009 coins, particularly the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial Cents and the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories quarters.
I have yet to find 2009 nickels and dimes.
