CNNMoney.com is reporting: — “For the first time in 50 years, the penny is getting redesigned, with four versions coming next year to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, the U.S. Mint announced Monday.
While the coin will continue to depict Lincoln’s likeness on the front, the reverse side will bear one of four new designs, the Mint said.
A Lincoln commemorative silver dollar will also be released in 2009.
“These coins are a tribute to one of our greatest presidents…he believed all men were created equal, and his life was a model for accomplishing through honesty, integrity, loyalty and a lifetime of education,” said U.S. Mint director Ed Moy.”
