The Lincoln penny has been in circulation in one form or another for well over a century at this point. In fact, the coin is still in circulation today, though its design is a bit different today, the coin is an important piece of US history. For collectors, the 1940s Lincoln is highly sought after due to its age, its design, and its historical significance. No matter the coin’s condition, coin collectors will stop at nothing to get their hands on these coins.
As for the design, the coin’s obverse is not too dissimilar from what it looks like today. The center of the obverse side is marked by the profile of former President Abraham Lincoln. To the President’s left will be a raised inscription which reads “Liberty,” while the 1940s year of minting will be inscribed to his right. Arching over the top edge of the coin will be the raised words “In God We Trust.”
On the coin’s reverse, you will notice the “one cent” face value as well as another inscription which reads “United States of America” dominating the central aspect. To the right and left of these inscriptions will be two single wheat stalks. Finally, the Latin phrase “E Pluribus Unum” will be arching over the top of the coin’s reverse.
