Fourth Lincoln Bicentennial One-Cent Coin
by U.S. Mint

On November 12, 2009, the United States Mint will release to the Federal Reserve Bank millions of one-cent coins bearing the fourth-and final-new reverse (tails side) design in the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One-Cent Program. The design is emblematic of Lincoln's presidency in Washington, D.C. For a limited time only, the agency will offer the 2009 Lincoln Cent Two-Roll Set - "Presidency" at its online catalog, http://www.usmint.gov/catalog, beginning at noon Eastern Time (ET) on November 12. Orders are limited to five units per household.

Priced at $8.95, the set contains one roll of 50 coins from the United States Mint at Philadelphia with no mint mark and one roll of 50 coins from the United States Mint at Denver with the "D" mint mark. Each roll is packaged in specially designed paper coin wrap that displays the mint of origin, the year and the face value of its contents.

The reverse design on the Lincoln "Presidency" one-cent coin depicts a half-finished United States Capitol dome, symbolizing a Nation torn apart by civil war and the resolve Lincoln showed as he guided the country through its gravest crisis. Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE CENT. The reverse was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Susan Gamble and sculpted by United States Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna. The coin's obverse (heads) continues to bear Victor David Brenner's familiar likeness of Lincoln.
