The Lincoln Bicentennial cents were minted in 2009 (only) celebrating the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth and the 100th year of the venerable Lincoln cent. There were four different designs minted that year with all four showing the obverse with the standard Lincoln bust and four different reverses as follows: 1) Birth and Early Childhood2) Formative Years3) Professional Life4) Presidency I have included additional information on the designs at the bottom of the listing. Besides four different designs, there were also three different types of strikes of these coins as follows: 1) Business or regular Circulation Strike - Both P&D (Philadelphia and Denver mints). These are the coins that circulated and are made mostly of Zinc. (8 Coins)2) Satin Strike - Both P&D (Philadelphia and Denver mints) cut from the 2009 mint sets. These coins did NOT circulate and could only be obtained by purchasing the 2009 mint set directly from the mint. These coins were specially made with special 95% Copper planchets (3% tin and 2% Zinc) to mirror the original metallic composition of the 1909 Lincoln cents. Because of their composition, they tend to "tone" or tarnish easily so I have taken them out of the mint sets and placed them in Guard House air tight holders for long term storage and protection. There were only about 771,000 of these coins minted which is quite low for Lincoln cents and therefore they are relatively hard to find as compared to other modern Lincoln cents. (8 Coins)3) Proof Strike - S (San Francisco mint) from the 2009 proof sets These coins did NOT circulate and could only be obtained by purchasing the 2009 proof set directly from the mint. The coins come in the original mint lenses from the proof sets and are untouched. (4 Coins) This is an interesting and unique set which contains the following 20 coins: 2009 Early Childhood Business Strike Lincoln Cents P&D, Satin Strike P&D + S Proof Lincoln Cents2009 Formative Years Childhood Business Strike Lincoln Cents P&D, Satin Strike P&D + S Proof Lincoln Cents2009 Professional Life Business Strike Lincoln Cents P&D, Satin Strike P&D + S Proof Lincoln Cents2009 Presidency Business Strike Lincoln Cents P&D, Satin Strike P&D + S Proof Lincoln Cents I sell a lot of these sets as the 2009 Lincoln coins are popular and the price I am asking low relative to others selling these coins.

The Below information taken directly from the PCGS Coin Facts for the 2009 Lincoln cents2009 Satin Finish Lincoln Cents with Low MintagesJaime Hernandez - October 26, 2010On October 1, 2009 the U.S. Mint began offering the 2009 Uncirculated Coin Sets. This set contained 36 different coins including eight significant coins, which are all the different 2009 Lincoln cents.The eight Lincoln cents in the 2009 Uncirculated Coin Set were the Log Cabin, Formative Years, Professional Life and Presidency designs. Each set contained all four different Lincoln cent designs with an example from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints.The eight different Lincoln cents issued in the set were of significance because they were composed of 95% copper alloy, 3% zinc and 2% tin. This metal composition was last used on Lincoln cents from 1909-1942. Additionally, all 2009 cents are a one-year type design that will never be produced again.The Mint sold approximately 771,204 sets of the 2009 Uncirculated Mint Sets, which means that the Satin Finish 2009 Lincoln cents now have the second-lowest mintage in the Lincoln cent series (for non-proof coins that are composed of mostly copper alloy). The four different 2009 Satin Finish Lincoln cents have an even lower mintage than the 1931-S Lincoln cent!The price of each 2009 Uncirculated Coin Set was originally set at $27.95 each if purchased directly from the U.S. Mint. However, the Mint unexpectedly discontinued selling the 2009 Uncirculated Sets on June 15, 2010. And in return, it created some truly scarce coins, especially if compared to other mintages of non-proof coins in the Lincoln cent series. Purchasing the 2009 Uncirculated Coin Set was the only method that collectors could use to obtain the 2009 Satin Finish Lincoln cents.PCGS Modern Coin Expert Miles Standish had this to say about the coins “These are simply wonderful cents. Purchasing these coins is like receiving a double bonus – low-mintage Lincoln Cents and Copper Commemoratives with four beautiful designs of our Nation’s history. They really have a great story of Honest Abe's life.” The Below information taken directly from "Designs for Lincoln Pennies in 2009" by Susan Headley (from The Spruce website) Birth and Early Childhood in Kentucky (1809-1816) - The first of the four new penny designs for the 2009 penny reverse features Abraham Lincoln's life as a young boy in Kentucky, where he was born in a log cabin. U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Master Designer Richard Masters created this realistic design, which is definitely different from my grade school textbooks' depictions of Lincoln's cabin. In the textbooks, Lincoln's cabin always seemed so neat and clean and perfectly built. I think this design really captures the reality of what a hand-built, early 19th century log cabin on the American frontier really looked like. The design was sculpted for the coin dies by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz.Be aware that there are some die varieties that have been found on the reverse. Look for some doubling on the ends of the logs on the corner of the cabin. The doubling is minute and you will need at least a 5X-10X magnifying glass to see the doubling on the ends of the logs.Lincoln's Formative Years in Indiana (1816-1830) - The second of the new penny designs pays tribute to Abraham Lincoln's youth in Indiana, where he worked as a rail splitter for the railroad. In the image, designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles Vickers, Lincoln is depicted reading during a break from what must have been very hard work! Can you imagine how much force you'd have to swing that type of mallet with, in order to split that fairly thick log the way it is depicted being done? I love the graceful portrait of the young Lincoln, with his tall, lanky frame relaxing as he caresses the book in his arms. This coin has the most die varieties of any coin in the series. Most of the die varieties involved Lincoln's hand that is holding the book. Some of the more minor varieties make it look like there is a shadow by Lincoln's fingers. Other more dramatic varieties look like there are additional fingers on Lincoln's hands. The more dramatic die varieties and a slight value to the premium of the coin's value.Lincoln's Professional Life in Illinois (1830-1861) - One thing about this new series of penny designs that will be good for Americans is their educational value. For instance, if you'd asked me in 2008 where Abraham Lincoln was born, I'd have told you, "Illinois. Everyone knows that Lincoln is from Illinois." As I've learned from following these new pennies, though, four different states can lay a solid claim on important stages of Lincoln's life.Lincoln's professional life is the part that happened in Illinois. The building depicted in the penny design is the old Illinois state capitol in Springfield. Lincoln gave a seminal speech there on June 16, 1858, upon his nomination for the U.S. Senate on the Republican ticket, a race he ultimately lost. The speech referred to as his House Divided speech, isn't as well known as the Gettysburg Address, but it showed that Lincoln had remarkable moral courage, and represented a turning point in how the intellectual elite perceived Lincoln.The design for this coin was created by AIP Master Designer Joel Iskowitz, and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart.Lincoln's Presidency in Washington, DC (1861-1865) - The depiction of the U.S. Capitol dome under construction was a somewhat controversial choice for this coin design. There are many images that can be used to portray the quintessential "Lincoln as President" archetype, but the half-finished Capitol dome certainly isn't one of them. In the end, however, this design was chosen as being the most emblematic of the challenges Lincoln faced overall during his presidency. The U.S. was torn apart by the Civil War, and its underlying moral struggle regarding slavery and Lincoln sought to build consensus and compromise and attempt to heal the nation after this terrible sundering. The construction of the U.S. Capitol dome, which was completed during Lincoln's first term, stands as a fine symbol of everything Lincoln stood for. The depiction on the coin is pretty much the same as the Capitol building actually appeared during Lincoln's Inauguration as President on March 4, 1861 (see next photo.)The design for this penny was created by AIP Master Designer Susan Gamble, and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna.
