Are pennies with no mark from the mint worth more than those that have a mark?

I have several pennies that were released in error, they have not been minted.

It depends on the year the penny was minted. A 1909 made in Philadelphia recently went for 10,000. 00 but newer coins may still have a high value as well.

Not all pennies have a mint mark. When a set of pennies is released each year, The set will have one with no mint mark, like 2010.

Pennies with no mint mark are not necessarily worth more than those with a mint mark. The value is determined by the number of that coin that were minted. Whether any were melted down affects the price also. The metal used to make the coin affects the value also.

Error coins, especially if there were only a few released are usually worth more than the face value of the coin. You'd have to check in a coin value book or with a reputable dealer to know for sure.
