The Lincoln Penny 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 Lincoln Memorial design first appeared on the reverse in 1959 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth.

• To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth and the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Penny, special commemorative coins will be issued in 2009, therefore, these are the “Last” Memorial Pennies.
