2012 Lincoln One-Cent Coin | Uncirculated

with 5 comments

You should start seeing 2012 pennies in your pocket change soon.  The penny has been fighting a battle lately, as so many people think it is time for it to go away.  I like the cent and think it should stay!

Engraver:  Victor D. Brenner
Description:  Bears the likeness of President Lincoln.

Designer:  Lyndall Bass
Engraver:  Joseph Menna
Description:  The reverse features a union shield with a scroll draped across it bearing the inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM (“out of many, one”).  The 13 vertical stripes of the shield represent the states joined in one compact union to support the federal government, represented by the horizontal bar above.  The union shield, which dates back to the 1780s, was used widely during the Civil War.  In addition, the shield device is featured on frescoes throughout the halls of the U.S. Capitol Building by Constantino Brumidi, artist of the Capitol during Lincoln’s presidency.
