Description
 
In honor of his many achievements, the United States Mint placed the portrait of Lincoln on both the 5 Dollar bill and the Cent piece...but what many forgot is that Honest Abe also had four special one-of-a-kind designed cents released in 2009 alongside his very own silver dollar! We have created a special collection bringing together all 5 of these special edition Abraham Lincoln coins into one stunning Centennial Set perfect for any collection!

These special release Lincoln cents were only in production for a short 13 week span, and will never be minted ever again! That makes these four Lincoln cents the shortest run of coins in the history of the United States Mint! The four special designs in the series are:

  • Birth and Early Childhood - This cent features the log cabin design symbolic of Abraham Lincoln's birthplace and childhood
  • Formative Years in Indiana - This cents design depicts a young Abraham Lincoln reading while taking a break from working as a “rail splitter” in Indiana.
  • Professional Life in Illinois - This cent portrays Lincoln standing in front to the State Capital in Illinois
  • Presidency in Washington D.C. - this final cent portrays the half finished United States Capitol dome in Washington D.C.
The United States Mint also minted a very special 90% silver dollar in honor of this momentous occasion, and collectors simply loved it! With a mintage of just 325,000, this dollar was a quick sell-out! This rare Proof Silver dollar ‘s obverse design bears the majestic image of President Lincoln, while the reverse bears the final 43 words of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address spelled out in capital letters accompanied by Lincoln's signature.

Those 43 words read ...

WE HERE HIGHLY RESOLVE THAT THESE DEAD SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN
- THAT THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, SHALL HAVE A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM - AND THAT GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, SHALL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH.

Our collection will consists of one 90% Abraham Lincoln proof silver dollar, and one of each of the four Centennial Design cents in proof condition minted at the San Francisco mint....but wait, it gets even better! Not only have we done the hard work and built this special 2009 Abraham Lincoln collection for you, but when you compare us to our competition our 5pc. Centennial proof set is simply an unbeatable value!
