More Ways to Get New Lincolns
By David C. Harper

Buying the second Lincoln cent design of 2009 for face value just got a little bit easier for collectors who live in and around Washington, D.C.

In addition to the May 14 public exchange scheduled for the Lincoln Amphitheatre in Lincoln City, Ind., following the formal debut ceremony of the Formative Years design that shows Lincoln as a rail splitter, the U.S. Mint will offer rolls of the new cent for face value at Union Station and at its headquarters sales counters in Washington, D.C., and also on Capitol Hill in the Rayburn Building.

There is a limit to the number of coins that can be obtained. It is a minimum exchange of two rolls of 50 coins and a maximum exchange of six rolls.

Hours for the Union Station and Mint Headquarters exchange are 10 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time until 4 p.m.

Mint headquarters is at 801 9th Street, N.W. and the sales counter is in the lobby.

The Rayburn Building exchange will occur the next day on May 15, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT.

The exchange in Indiana will begin after the ceremony, which is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Central Daylight Time and will continue until Freedom Bank exhausts its supply of coins or the public present has obtained all they desire.

The Mint reserves the right to change the limits.
