Northwest Territorial Mint 1/10 Troy Oz 1943 War Penny Silver Replica

Here’s a must-have item for coin collectors and history buffs – a pure silver 1/10 Troy Oz re-creation of the 1943 steel “silver” or “war” penny minted for one year during the Second World War.

Why was the penny minted in steel? The copper diverted from penny production in an era of scrap drives and ration books was enough to meet the combined needs of 2 cruisers, 2 destroyers, 1,243 flying fortresses, 120 field guns and 120 howitzers according to the Department of the Treasury.

Silver War Pennies

Each replica weighs 1/10 Troy Oz, measures 3/4-inch in diameter (just like a 1943 penny), and is solid .999-fine pure silver. Minted in our Dayton, Nevada facility, the obverse of each War Penny Silver Replica features a unique image of Abraham Lincoln few have seen – sculpted by Lincoln penny designer Victor David Brenner prior to the 1909 introduction of his Lincoln head penny. The replica's reverse adapts the wheat reverse used in 1943 and through much 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 stocking up on silver, 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 1/10 Troy Oz 1943 War Penny Silver Replica is a must-have item that will be appreciated as the years roll by.
