No real value to them. Dealers usually throw them in the "junk box" at 25 cents or 5/$1

CorrectionThese are not cents. They are mint medals struck on cent blanks. Originally they were used as placeholders when the hapless SBA dollar was discontinued. The Mint had zillions of plastic holders with six slots but only five denominations of coins to put in them, and came up with the idea of filling them with the little medals. The medals proved popular so the Mint continued to produce them long after the SBA was gone.

Unless it is in exceptional uncirculated condition, an average uncirculated 1957 Philadelphia mint cent has a value of about $12 and a Denver mint has a value of about $5.

Value is 1 cent. 3,300,000,000 were struck at Philadelphia and 3,548,000,000 were made in Denver so they're not exactly rare. Even a nice uncirculated one would sell for only 15 or 20 cent.

1 cent, unless it's uncirculated.

It's not a Penny it's a Mint medal struck on a 1 cent planchet and has no value

If you found it in change, one cent. 5,165,940,000 were struck at Philadelphia and 4,158,442,076 were made in Denver so they're not exactly rare. Even a nice uncirculated one would sell for only 15 or 20 cent.
