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.

• 1943 coin was made in steel to save copper for World War II supplies; it is the first and only steel coin in U.S. history.

• To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth and the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Penny, four special commemorative Lincoln Pennies were issued in 2009.

• The 2009 coins were the first commemorative Pennies in history.

• Four commemorative stamps were issued in 1958 and 1959 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth.

• The $5 Legal Tender Note features Lincoln’s portrait and a red seal.

• $5 Legal Tender Note was last issued in the Series of 1963.
