How many 1982 d small date pennies were minted?

by Nick
(Buffalo, NY)

Question: I would like to know how many 1982 d small date us cents were minted.


My Answer: Nick, as far as I know, the Mint has never released the mintage breakdown for the 1982 types of cents, other than reporting the total number of one cent coins minted at each mint.

Philadelphia (no mint mark) - 10,712,525,000

Denver (D) - 6,012,979,368

There are seven types of 1982 cents. Three types are made of 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc and include the small date and large date coins made in Philadelphia (no mint mark) and the cents made in Denver (D).

The other four types were made of 99.2% zinc and .8% copper and include the large and small date cents minted in Philadelphia (no mint mark) and the large and small date cents minted in Denver (D).

Cu v. Zn penny durability NEW
by: John Haug

I've been collecting 1982 pennies for 18 years and have accumulated 30 zinc cents and 119 copper type. I assumed they were minted at an equal number and the disparity was due to the zinc coin tending to dissolve. With the premise of equal numbered minting now only speculative I don't know what to think. Can further inquiries find more precision in the break down of copper v. zinc?
