I was going through some boxes and found this penny. The penny is gold colored and sealed inside a plastic sleeve. Other than the color it looks like any other penny. Is there something special about it?

I don't know about the penny but I like your Signature line....

It looks to me to simply be a 1959-D Lincoln cent in uncirculated condition. Most likely someone stored it away as part of a collection at one time. The color isn't really odd. Sometimes those plastic holders will discolor coins a bit.

I agree with Sojourner. It appears to be in uncirculated condition. This was the first year the Lincoln Memorial penny was released. That is pretty cool. The Red Book puts the mintage at almost 1.3 billion. Nice penny though.

Can't tell from the picture if it's the same but ive also found pennies hunting boxes that were a yellowish color.. Like the mint messed up the metal content of a small batch. This is an 83 image.jpeg

I tumble my clad and pennys have to be tumbled by themselves. What color would you like one at, I only have about three colors for sure I can reproduce on purpose? But still worth investigating. Seems a lot of newer pennys with minting errors are worth some dough. Not sure my red book is gonna have that info in it about a bright or odd color. Would put that one back in that safe for a few years.
