 E-mail this product to a friend


• Four 2009 Lincoln Pennies struck in .992 zinc and .008 copper with a plating of pure copper, then plated in 24 karat gold.

• The U.S. Mint struck four different Lincoln Pennies in 2009 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth and the 100th anniversary of the first Lincoln Penny.

• Each coin was struck for circulation in Philadelphia and Denver, but no specific mint marks are promised.

• This collection includes one each of the four different 2009 designs.

• Each coin is richly layered in 24 karat gold to create a unique collection and to enhance the beauty of the coins. 

• Only a tiny fraction of all 2009 coins were set aside for this special gold-plated collection.

• The obverse of each coin is the original Lincoln portrait by sculptor Victor D. Brenner that has graced the Penny since 1909.

• Each of the four designs represents a different aspect or theme in the life of Lincoln. 

• They were the first commemorative Pennies in history, and they were made only in 2009.

• The first coin honors Lincoln’s childhood in Kentucky; it features the log cabin where he was born in 1809.

• The second is a tribute to Lincoln’s formative years in Indiana and shows young Lincoln reading.

• The third depicts Lincoln’s professional life in Illinois and features him in front of the state capitol building in Springfield.

• The final coin honors Lincoln’s Presidency; it shows the unfinished Capitol dome to symbolize a nation divided by the Civil War.

• The coins are in a custom display.
