Description
 

Genuine "FIRST DAY OF ISSUE"


This is an official certified 2010 Lincoln "Shield" Cent, that was handed out at the release ceremony on February 11th, 2010. The official launch ceremony for the FIRST design in the new series took place at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, IL. With sub freezing temperatures, the allotment from the Mint sold out in less than 3 hours! But, once again, our people were there!

Each of the cents have been certified by ANACS as being officially postmarked from the release ceremony.

As Director of the Mint Edmund C. Moy referenced at the release - "This 1-cent coin honors the preservation of the union, which was Abraham Lincoln's ultimate achievement. Because of his Presidency, despite bitter regional enmity and a horrific civil war, we remained the United States of America." According to Moy, the Union Shield design will appear on the reverse of the Lincoln Cents struck for the next 50 years, unless the Treasury Secretary exercises his statutory discretion to change the design.

Popularity is key!
This FIRST YEAR OF ISSUE will be remembered for years to come! This 2010 certified shield cent comes complete with cherry wood presentation case.
