Why order this 1947 Lincoln Cent?
World War II established the United States as one of the world's preeminent powers. In the wake of the war, the Marshall Plan played an essential role in rebuilding Western Europe and both maintaining security and securing U.S. influence in the region. This Lincoln Cent, part of a series that began in 1909, dates back to the year that the Marshall Plan was introduced, making it perfect for collectors who have an appreciation for American and European history.
Powerful President Abraham Lincoln Design by Victor D. Brenner
Obverse: A right-side portrait of President Abraham Lincoln by Victor D. Brenner, who also designed the reverse, graces the obverse. To the left and right of the leader, respectively, are the inscriptions "LIBERTY" and "1947." Above along the rim is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Reverse: Two ears of wheat flank a pair of inscriptions on the reverse. Those inscriptions provide the coin's face value, "ONE CENT," and country of issue, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." Also inscribed on this face is a second statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Born in the Russian Empire in what is today Lithuania, Victor D. Brenner immigrated to the United States. He was a sculptor, engraver, and medalist whose best known work is this coin.
