New 2009 Circulating Lincoln Penny Images
By CoinNews.net

The United States Mint is geared up to issue celebratory bicentennial Lincoln cents and has released 2009 Lincoln Penny images for public viewing. The coin images are timely. The first of four commemorative circulating cents will launch on Thursday, February 12, to kick-off the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincolnís birth.

Four Bicentennial 2009 Lincoln Penny Images

Similar to the 2009 Lincoln Silver Dollar images released last week, the new images provide a genuine sense of how the coins will look and feel up close, unlike the initial penny designs made available in September of 2008.

The four new designs celebrate the bicentennial of President Abraham Lincolnís birth, as well as the 100th anniversary of the production of the Lincoln cent. The obverse, or heads side, of the pennies bear the standard Victor David Brennerís likeness of President Lincoln, introduced in 1909.

Each reverse depicts the four major aspects of Lincolnís life: his birth and childhood in Kentucky, his formative years in Indiana, his professional life in Illinois and his Presidency in Washington, D.C.
