Die Clash Penny
A mule penny is a rare and beautiful coin that was struck with a “die clash” error on one of the dies. The error can occur with either the obverse or reverse dies of the same coin series, or with two different dies from different coins. It is not uncommon for a die clash to occur with a particular type of penny. In most cases, though, it does not appear to be an intentional mistake.
The latest mule penny discovered in 2018 is a new member of the Society, Amy D Antone. Amy discovered this coin on the reverse face of a 1999 cent.

The letters were also cut peripherally, indicating that the hammer die was tilted.
When a die clash error is visible, a collector should take the coin to a knowledgeable coin dealer for an evaluation. A knowledgeable dealer can determine the value of the coin based on sight-seen. A die clash penny should be worth at least $15. This is because it is rare, and many collectors are willing to pay up to $15 for it.
