Cybercoins' Lincoln Cents

Cybercoins.net, the world's neighborhood coin shop.

By 1909 we were ready to have a “facelift” for our cents. It was a new century and a new age and folks felt we needed a new design of this most basic coin. Victor David Brenner designed this coin which was issued as part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. The coin has been popular enough that while we have changed the reverse (to a design by Frank Gasparro showing the Lincoln Memorial) we have left the face alone. Metals have changed twice; during World War II (1943) we used steel as the other metals were needed for the war effort and beginning in 1982 we went to a copper plated zinc as the metal value of a cent was approaching its face value as it had in 1857. Long a starting place in collecting for numismatists, the Lincoln Cent is a classic American coin.

Good reference works for those more interested in this type of coin are “The Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins” by Walter Breen and “The Authoritative Reference on Lincoln Cents” by John Wexler and Kevin Flynn.
