Best Answer

Wheat cents were made from 1909 to 1958 at 3 different mints so it's not possible to give more than a very general answer without more specific information.

Common date circulated wheat cents are worth 2 to 3 cents apiece.

However there are some rarer wheat cents that can be worth several hundred dollars. You're not likely to find them in change, but if you've inherited someone's collection it's worth it to go through the coins to see what you have.

You need to organize the coins by date and mint mark. Look below the date to see if there is a small D or S indicating Denver or San Francisco. Cents without a mint mark were made in Philadelphia. Then check the price guide at the Related Link below for specific retail values.

Most of them are worth face value, i.e. one cent. A few specifically rare ones are worth more. You should take it to a dealer if you want an estimate.
