Lincoln Cents

1959-Present Memorial Reverse

The Lincoln Cent, still in production today, began minting in 1959. Designed by Victor D. Brenner, the obverse features the bust of Abraham Lincoln and was originally adopted in 1909 on the Lincoln Wheat Ears Reverse coin (also referred to as the Wheat Penny). The reverse was designed by Frank Gasparro, which depicts the Lincoln Memorial, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth.

Composition from 1959-1962: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and ZInc
Composition from 1962-1982: 95% Copper, 5% Zinc
Composition from 1982-Present: 97.5% Zinc, 2.5% Copper
