The 1909 S VDB penny is perhaps one of the most- famous rare coins.
While there are rarer coins, the 1909 S VDB cent is so popular because:
- It has a relatively small mintage of just 484,000.
- It belongs to one of the most popular coin series (Lincoln cents).
- Many people love the story behind the coin.
The Lincoln Cent was introduced in 1909 to coincide with the centennial of the birth of Abraham Lincoln.
The coins featured the portrait of Abraham Lincoln on the obverse and a pair of wheat ears on the reverse, as designed by Victor D. Brenner.
This reverse design was used from 1909 to 1958. The obverse design remains in use today
Lincoln Cents are highly popular with collectors due to the accessibility of the series.
Many collectors began in their youth by filling coin books with Wheat Cents taken from circulation.
For collectors with bigger budgets, the series includes some well known key dates and can be a challenge to assemble in high grades with full red coins.
This is the KEY DATE to the series!
Lowest reported mintage for the 1909-S VDB Lincoln Cent was only 484,000 pieces struck.
The designer's initials, which appear on the reverse beneath the wheat ears, were removed following objections from the public.
Coin appears Extra Fine but please look at the pictures and Judge for yourself!
