Today August 13, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET, sales of the 2009 Lincoln Cent “Professional Life” Two Roll Sets will begin at the United States Mint. This will represent the third Two Roll Set released for the newly designed Lincoln Cents.
To celebrate the Bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, four different designs are being issued for the 2009 Lincoln Cent, which represent the different stages of Lincoln’s life. The third design represents his professional life spent in Illinois during the years 1830 to 1861. A young, professional Lincoln is pictured before the Illinois State Capitol building, as designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Don Everhart.
The US Mint’s Two Roll Set features one roll of 50 coins from the Philadelphia Mint and one roll of 50 coins from the Denver Mint. The coins in each roll have never been circulated. Each roll is packaged in a custom designed wrapper that indicates the year, mint, design, and face value of the coins.
The two roll sets are priced at $8.95 each plus shipping and handling. There is an ordering limit of five sets per household.
