A Piece of History in Your Collection
We have Theodore Roosevelt to thank for Lincoln cents. In 1909, he introduced Brenner’s design to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Lincoln’s birth. At the time, it was the first U.S. coin to feature the likeness of a real person (rather than Lady Liberty, who had been featured on preceding coin designs).
If you’re interested in other small cents, Pre-Lincoln coins like Flying Eagle cents and Indian cents are also exciting to collect and have an interesting design history to explore. Pennies have long been the lowest face-value coin, making them great starter coins for new collectors. In production since 1787, there are many penny designs and series to collect. Whether shopping for specific pennies or cent rolls, L&C Coins is here to help.
