Timeline Tuesday: Lincoln Penny

The year 2009 is the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth and the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the Lincoln penny. When the Lincoln one-cent coin first appeared in 1909, it marked a radical departure from the accepted styling of United States coinage. It was the first regular coin to bear a portrait other than the mythical Liberty, which appeared on most pre-1909 regular coins.
