In 2009 the U.S. Mint struck 4 different penny designs to commemorate the bicentennial birth of our great president Abraham Lincoln. This also marks the 100th anniversary of the lincoln cent. These 4 designs celebrate the life and legacy that Lincoln left behind and as such these coins were struck in copper just as the original Lincoln cents were. All 4 of these prestigious proof coins are beautifully housed in the original U.S. Mint issue lens depicting the American flag. These coins have been a sold out limited edition since 2009 so don't miss out on what could be your last chance to get this great commemorative!
