Moving President Abraham Lincoln Design by Victor D. Brenner

Reverse: The coin's face value, "ONE CENT," and issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," feature prominently on the reverse. On either side of the inscriptions is an ear of wheat. Above the inscriptions is the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Victor D. Brenner emigrated from the Russian Empire in modern day Lithuania and immigrated to the United States.
