2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Proof Set (LN2)

Sold Out

In 2009, the United States Mint is minting and issuing four new one-cent coins in recognition of the bicentennial of President Abraham Lincoln’s birth and the 100th anniversary of the first issuance of the Lincoln Cent. The 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Proof Set contains all of the one-cent coins issued in 2009 – Birthplace, Formative Years, Professional Life and Presidency, each with the San Francisco (S) mint mark. These coins have the exact metallic content as contained in the 1909 one-cent coin (95% copper, 5% tin and zinc). The reverses of the Lincoln Cent reflect four different designs, each one representing a different aspect, or theme, of the life of President Lincoln.

The United States Mint will begin shipping this product in late November 2009.

United States Mint proof coins are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high-quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in a protective lens to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish.

These four coins will be struck for a limited time only, making this set not only a great gift but also an enduring reminder of our Nation’s history!
