 E-mail this product to a friend


• 100 Lincoln Pennies: some are struck in .950 copper and .050 tin and zinc; some are steel coated with zinc; some are .950 copper and .050 zinc; and some are .992 zinc and .008 copper with a plating of pure copper.  Precise numbers of each type are unknown due to the different mixes in each collection.

• The coins come in a canvas bag with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The Lincoln Penny was first minted in 1909 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth.

It was the first circulating coin to feature a real person instead of Lady Liberty.

The obverse features a portrait of Lincoln by sculptor Victor D. Brenner.

The reverse of the coin until 1958 was the legendary “wheat ears” design.

• The “wheat ears” design was replaced with the Lincoln Memorial on the reverse in 1959.

• The coins were made in .950 copper and .050 tin and zinc until 1962, .950 copper and .050 zinc from 1962-1982, and .992 zinc and .008 copper with a plating of pure copper from 1982 to date.

• 1943 coins were made in steel to save copper for use in making World War II supplies.

• 1944-1946 coins were made in .950 copper and .050 zinc with the copper coming from recycled shell cases gathered from battleships and battlefields around the world.

• At least one of each type and design of Lincoln Penny is included in the collection.

• This hoard is a great way to start or add to a collection of Lincoln Pennies.

• No specific dates or mint marks are guaranteed, but the bag may contain sought-after dates and mint marks.
