 E-mail this product to a friend


• Eight 2009 Lincoln Pennies struck in .992 zinc and .008 copper with a plating of pure copper, and four 2009 Lincoln Pennies struck in .950 copper and .050 tin and zinc.

• 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 at both the Philadelphia (no mint mark) and Denver (“D” mint mark under the date on the obverse) Mints.

• The San Francisco Mint also struck Proof coins that bear the “S” mint mark.

• The regular 2009 coins were struck in .992 zinc (the same composition as all regular-issue Pennies since 1982), but the 2009 Proof coins were made in .950 copper to match the original composition of the first Lincoln Pennies in 1909. 

• This is the complete collection of all 12 coins: all four coin designs from all three Mints.

• Coins from Philadelphia and Denver are Brilliant Uncirculated, while coins from the San Francisco Mint are Proofs.

• Proofs are the highest quality coins struck by the U.S. Mint. 

• The coins are displayed in a custom collector’s coin wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.

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

• They were the first commemorative Pennies in history.  They were made only in 2009 and can never be made again.

• 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 the Civil War.

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

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