Why add this 1920-S Lincoln Wheat Cent to your collection?

The Lincoln Cent was introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1909, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. This represented the first time the Mint issued a coin for circulation depicting an actual person instead of Liberty personified. This Lincoln Cent is one of the 46,220,000 struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1920. The 19 mm diameter coin is minted from a composition of 95% copper, 5% tin and zinc.

Lincoln Wheat Cent Design by Victor David Brenner

The obverse features the right facing image of Abraham Lincoln. The inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST" curves above, with "LIBERTY" and "1909" flanking the portrait and San Francisco's "S" Mint mark below the date. The designer's initials "VDB" appear at the truncation of the President's shoulder.

Two grains of wheat are illustrated on the reverse, gracefully bending around the center inscriptions "ONE CENT" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." The motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed above.
