Northwest Territorial Mint 1 Troy Oz 1943 War Penny Silver Replica

It’s a tribute to the World War II effort on the homefront. In order to divert copper to production of items such assault wire, munitions, and ships and airplanes in 1943, the US Mint avoided the use of copper in the 1,093,838,670 pennies it produced, instead striking pennies in steel with a zinc coating.

Silver War Pennies

These 1 Troy Oz re-creations of one of the most unique and easily identifiable coins ever are a full 1-1/2 inches in diameter (39mm) of.999-fine pure silver. Minted in our Dayton, Nevada facility, each War Penny Silver Replica is a modern-day oversized version of the coin that helped win World War II.

The obverse features an image of Lincoln from a pre-1909 study done by Lincoln penny sculptor Victor David Brenner; the wheat reverse echoes the one used in the war year of 1943 and fully half of the twentieth century.

And when it comes to pennies, we know what we're doing — our Medallic Art Company division cut the original dies for the first Lincoln penny!

Whether you’re looking for a unique gift for a relative who lived through World War II or a gift of historical value for a child in your life, the Northwest Territorial Mint 1 Troy Oz 1943 Silver War Penny Round is a must-have item that will be appreciated as the years roll by. And unlike the originals – it won’t rust!


Your War Penny Silver Replica will come displayed in a custom-fit snap-lock case.
