The new design is emblematic of President Abraham Lincoln’s preservation of the United States as a single and united country. While the obverse (heads side) continues to bear the familiar Victor David Brenner likeness of President Lincoln that has appeared on the coin since 1909, the reverse (tails) features a union shield with a scroll draped across with the inscription ONE CENT. It includes the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE CENT, and was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Associate Designer Lyndall Bass and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna.
This set is comprised of 100 coins -- one roll of 50 coins minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia (no mint mark) and one roll of 50 coins minted at the United States Mint at Denver (“D” mint mark). Each coin roll is wrapped with special United States Mint coin paper depicting the new designs, a “P” or “D” representing the roll’s mint of origin and “50¢,” representing its face value. These rolls contain one-cent coins used in regular commercial transactions. However, because these coins have never been circulated, they also make a great addition to your private collection or a wonderful gift for someone special. These historic coins are available for a limited time only.
