Lincoln Penny gets a makeover for 2009

So lemme get this straight -- on the top penny, a log cabin is 'heads' and Honest Abe is 'tails'??

I believe those are four separate designs, not two designs with their reverses.

:(

As I understand it, his profile would remain on the obverse with each of these designs on the reverse, replacing the Lincoln Memorial.

Just like what they did with the Nickel a few years back for the Louisiana Purchase.

So they scrapped the county penny program? Shucks

Damn you! I just clicked and started reading without noticing the website I was on. After a couple sentences I was like, "No, this is ridiculous." I kept reading until "Starting in 2006, the U.S. Mint will release five new pennies per year for the next 629 years." That was when I needed the source. Funny.

Nice looking designs there. Makes me wish that the Royal Mint had done something similar instead of "puzzle change".

I wish the US Mint would do something like the "Puzzle Change." That reminds me I still gotta order me a set of those.

Yeah, I guess if the USM did it, it would be vastly superior and not try and hide national identity. :rolleyes:

Can't believe no one has mentioned this yet. 4 designs to celebrate both the 200nd anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, and the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln penny

Lincoln Penny 2009

I'm so old I remember when they added the Lincoln Memorial on the reverse side in 1959. I don't remember a big outcry as we thought it looked "sharp" as opposed to the old design.
