The Penny

Anyone know why they took the Lincoln monument off of the back of the penny? I just noticed it.

  • There's like 5 new designs -- the redesigned the penny to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth in 2009 included 4 new designs. This year there was a 5th design added, the Shield design.

  • That's interesting I've never noticed. I think it's like most of the other coins they're just bringing some new changes to keep them from looking so borring I guess.. lol
