Souvenir Penny - Oak Island Lighthouse

Availability: Common (See Below)

Approximate Value: $1-$2

Description: This is a souvenir penny depicting the Oak Island Lighthouse on Oak Island, NC. It is impossible to tell the date of when the souvenir penny was made and the date on the penny itself is not visible due to the flattening of the penny, but this souvenir penny was likely made in the 1990s or 2000s, as this is when souvenir penny machines of this type were popular.

Item Acquired: October 25, 2012 from Leicester, NC

Availability Scale: We have loosely defined 4 categories of availability for classifying items in our collection. There are many degrees of availability within each main category and the opinion of availability is subjective. These 4 main categories have been created to convey to the reader the approximate availability of an item within our collection. The availability is subject to change as new research comes to light.

  • Common - A common item is one where many examples are known to exist. Most modern items are considered common due to the large numbers of items made, published and distributed.
  • Uncommon - An uncommon item is one that does not surface often. There may be many examples of an uncommon item in circulation, but just not as readily available as a common item.
  • Scarce - A scarce item is one that is hardly ever seen outside of a few well known collections such as The Southport Times' Collection, the New Hanover County Public Library's North Carolina Collection or the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's North Carolina Collection.
  • Rare - A rare item is an item where only 1 or 2 examples are known to exist. Items in this category may not even exist in the largest and most complete collections. Items in this category have extremely low distribution rates, adding to the rarity of the item.
