Rolls of the First Redesigned Lincoln One-Cent Coin Available March 13

WASHINGTON - At noon Eastern Time (ET) on March 13, 2009, the United

States Mint will offer rolls of one-cent coins bearing the first of four

new reverse designs struck in honor of the bicentennial of President

Abraham Lincoln's birth. The historic Lincoln Cent Birthplace Two-Roll

Set-available for a limited time only is priced at $8.95.

The two-roll set contains one roll each of 50 coins, one produced at the

United States Mint at Philadelphia and one produced at the United States

Mint at Denver. Each roll of coins in the two-roll set is packaged in

specially designed paper coin wrap that displays the mint of origin, the

year and the face value of the contents.

The reverse design (tails side) of the new one-cent coin features a log

cabin representing Lincoln's humble beginnings in Kentucky.

Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS

UNUM, ONE CENT and 1809. The reverse was designed by United States Mint

Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Richard Masters and executed

by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz.

The obverse (heads side) will continue to bear renowned sculptor Victor

David Brenner's familiar likeness of President Abraham Lincoln currently

on the one-cent coin.
