The Presidential One Dollar Coin Act of 2005 required that the reverse of the Lincoln Cent be redesigned for 2009 in honor of the Bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The coins were designed to be emblematic of four different stages of the 16th President's life, his birth and early childhood in Kentucky, his formative years in Indiana, his professional life in Illinois, and finally his Presidency in Washington D.C.
