Montpelier, VT (Vocus/PRWEB) March 22, 2011
Rare coins, coins with mint errors and the first coins in long-running series are among the most popular with coin collectors. While coins that fit these descriptions are also generally harder to find, International Coins & Currency (ICCOIN) is now making available the first 1909 “Wheatie” and the first 1959 “Memorial” Lincoln cents through its website, http://www.iccoin.com.
The Lincoln Cent series is one of the longest in U.S. minting history. It debuted in 1909 on the centennial of Lincoln’s birth. Fifty years later, in 1959, the reverse was altered from the famous “Wheatie” to a “Lincoln Memorial” design. ICCOIN’s set includes the first 1909 “Wheatie” cent in fine quality and the first 1959 “Lincoln Memorial” cent in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
For a limited time, ICCOIN is making a unique offer: When you buy both coins, you get five different recent Lincoln cents free. In 2009, the U.S. Mint celebrated the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth and 100 years of the famous cent with four one-year-only designs honoring the legendary president’s birthplace, formative years, professional life and presidency. Then, in 2010, the reverse design was again updated to the current “Shield” image. ICCOIN will include all five issues in Brilliant Uncirculated quality for no charge.
