Information on the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Program:
In 2009, the US Mint will issue four different cent coins in recognition of the bicentennial of President Abraham Lincoln's birth. 2009 is also the 100th anniversary of the first issuance of the Lincoln cent. The reverse designs were unveiled at a ceremony held at the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. While the obverse will continue to bear the familiar likeness of President Lincoln currently on the penny, the reverse will reflect four different designs, each one representing a different aspect, or theme, of the life of President Lincoln.
This Lincoln Bicentennial Penny Set makes a great gift and is a special way to remember and honor Abraham Lincoln, one of our great presidents. We also offer these historic 2009 Lincoln Cents in BU bank wrapped rolls.
