The 1936 penny is one of the most common pennies in George V series and is the easiest and most affordable date to acquire
in mint state. Obtaining the coin in higher mint state grades can still
be quite a challenge, though not always paired with an equally challenging price. Despite this, the coin is nowhere near
as popular as a type coin as the 1911 penny, the 1911 penny being readily available in higher mint state
grades and with considerable mint brilliance. Nevertheless, the fast rising prices of top quality
1911 pennies may make the 1936 the next top desirable type coin.
