• 100 coins struck in .950 copper and .050 tin and zinc.

• 1982 or earlier Lincoln copper Cents.

Coins are delivered in a canvas sack with a Certificate of Authenticity.

• Until 1982, the Lincoln Cents were struck in .950 copper.

• Copper coins have been out of issue for over 25 years.

• They are highly valued by collectors for the copper content and the historical importance.

• This collection features 100 assorted Lincoln Cents minted in copper.

The Lincoln Cent was first minted in 1909 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth.

It was the first circulating coin to feature a real person instead of Lady Liberty.

• The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Lincoln by sculptor Victor D. Brenner.

The reverse of the coin until 1958 was the legendary “wheat ears” design.

• The “wheat ears” design was replaced with the Lincoln Memorial on the reverse in 1959.

• The Lincoln Memorial design helped celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth.

• After 1982, Lincoln Cents were struck in .992 zinc with a plating of copper.

• Specific dates and mint marks in this collection are not guaranteed, but coins could include “wheat ears” and Lincoln Memorial issues, as well as coins struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints.

• This is a great way to start or add to a collection of classic Lincoln Cents, as well as the ideal way to get children and grandchildren interested in coin collecting.
