Finally found first 2017 coin in change

Coins | user_7180

Well it took almost 6 months into the year, but my grandson finally received a 2017 coin as change.  A 2017-D Jefferson Nickel.  He is so happy about it, for the time being it has erased those daily disappointed non-find days.  The coin we found is certainly not the one pictured.  The one he received has the typical bag marks, but we will gladly take it and look forward to the next 2017 coin whatever it may be.

That's so cool! I'm glad your Grandson found one! ; )

I found my first 2017 coin this month at Arby's. It was a 2017 P cent.

Late in the year for sure, but it is good to see them finally making it into circulation.

About time indeed. This definitely is the latest in any year that we found any new coin of that calendar year.

Glad your grandson had a good find. It sounds like has patience. He's going to need it as a collector. I still haven't received a cent yet. Good luck on future finds!

He has lots of fun with that part. The patience with finding new coins is a little tricky.
