PLEASE NOTE: All coins on our website must be purchased in conjunction with a frame - no individual coin sales. Thanks!
This stunning 2018 Lincoln Shield Silver Reverse Proof Penny was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint producing proof coinage. What makes this penny unique is the beautiful reverse proof finish, resulting in a magnificent effect where the reverse proof coin's shiny design elements and frosted backgrounds makes a stunning contrast (photos above do not do this coin justice!). With a limited mintage of 200,000, it will be a true collector's item for years to come.
The Lincoln Memorial Penny has featured the profile of President Abraham Lincoln since 1909, the centennial of his birth. Beginning in 2010, the Union Shield was introduced on the reverse side as a symbol of President Lincoln’s desire to preserve the United States as a single and united country. The Union Shield dates back to the 1780’s and was used widely during the Civil War. Similar to coin shown.
