Lincoln Cent Folder Collection

The Lincoln Cent started minting in 1909 and replaced the Indian Head cent. The coins obverse features a bust of Abraham Lincoln. It has been in continuous usage, while its reverse was changed in 1959 to the Lincoln Memorial. This design change was to celebrate Lincolns sesquicentennial. There are more pennies produced than any other cent, which makes the Lincoln Cent very well known.
