For 50 years, the Lincoln set featured the Memorial reverse and has been very popular with collectors. Then, in 2009, to celebrate the Lincoln cent turning 100 years old, the design was changed with four different reverses to reflect four periods in the life of Lincoln. Again, in 2010, a new reverse design was introduced. Whether the Lincoln cent will end here is a question still unanswered by the U.S. Mint. Proof coins are the pinnacle of the coiner’s art and a full Red, Proof-70 Deep Cameo Lincoln Cent can be an incredibly breathtaking and impressive coin. Perfection is the key in this series and the competition is tough. Are you up to the challenge?
