The Lincoln memorial first appeared on the reverse of U.S. Cents in 1959 – today, the design is over forty years old. It’s popularity is reflected in the millions of people who collect this small, but important, denomination. 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?
