2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Proof Set - San Francisco Mint
2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Proof Set – San Francisco Mint
The 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Proof Set salutes the bicentennial of President Abraham Lincoln’s birth and the 100th anniversary of the first issuance of the Lincoln Cent. This set is a tribute to the legacy of one of America’s greatest Presidents, who preserved the Union and ensured the freedom of millions of Americans.
This set contains all of the one-cent coins issued in 2009 – Birthplace, Formative Years, Professional Life and Presidency, each with the San Francisco mint mark. These coins have the exact metallic content as contained in the 1909 one-cent coin (95% copper, 5% tin and zinc). The reverses of the Lincoln Cent reflect four different designs, each one representing a different aspect, or theme, of the life of President Lincoln.
These proof coins are struck from specially selected and polished planchets (coin blanks). The dies used to strike these coins are specially prepared as well and highly polished. Proof coins are struck twice to ensure an increased sharpness in detail. The coins also exhibit a mirror finish because of the polished die and planchet.
Minted in 2009 by the US Mint, this set includes the original US Mint packaging with certificate of authenticity. Whether you’re looking to add to or complete a collection, or simply wish to enjoy a piece of American culture, purchase this US Mint set today.
