Why purchase this 1954-S Lincoln Cent?

The Lincoln Cent is a classic American coin that has been issued annually, and this one comes from an important period in American history. The 1950's saw the Korean War and major challenges to America's status quo. Elvis Pressley began his career, dividing the country between the entertained and the appalled while the Supreme Court mandated that public schools desegregate. This penny offers a special connection to everyday life during this fascinating period.

  • Lincoln Cents have been an annual part of American coinage since 1909.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Mint State 66+.

Powerful President Abraham Lincoln Design by Victor D. Brenner

Obverse: Victor D. Brenner designed the obverse, which bears a portrait of President Abraham Lincoln. He is joined by the inscriptions "LIBERTY" on the left and "1954" on the right. Also included on this face is the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."

Reverse: Brenner also designed the reverse, where inscriptions of the coin's face value, "ONE CENT," and country of issue, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," feature in the center. On either side is an ear of wheat. The statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed above along the rim. Victor D. Brenner was a sculptor and medalist who immigrated to the United States from present day Lithuania. The Lincoln Cent is his best known work.

Beautifully Preserved MS66+ RD

This piece earned a Mint State 66+ grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). A coin must have been very well struck to receive that grade. Possessing full mint red luster, this Lincoln Cent also qualified for NGC's Red designation.
