Why Order This MS68 First Day of Issue 2019-W Lincoln Cent with a Lincoln Label and a 2019 U.S. Mint Set?
The Lincoln cent has been in production since 1909. These iconic coins are widely collected and have seen a number of design changes over the years. Three Lincoln Cents with differing finishes, all bearing the iconic "W" Mint mark of the West Point Mint, were released by the U.S. Mint with certain annual coin sets-an exciting first for the Mint! The specimen offered here is a 2019-W Lincoln cent with an uncirculated finish. This cent comes with a 20 piece 2019 U.S. Mint Set, which includes an example of each piece of 2019 circulating coinage, one struck at the Philadelphia Mint, the other at Denver.
Obverse by Brenner and Reverse by Bass
When the Lincoln cent was introduced in 1909, both the obverse and reverse were the work of Victor David Brenner. Today, Brenner's portrait of Abraham Lincoln can still be found on the obverse. The date and "W" mintmark are also displayed here.
The current design on the reverse of the Lincoln cent is the work of Lyndall Bass. It shows a Union Shield. The face value is also located here.

The Nickel has a fascinating history that includes a four-year run of war nickels during some of America’s most challenging times (1942-1945). For all of its rich tradition, the coin has never featured the West Point Mint’s “W” mint mark… until now.
Issued since 1909, the Lincoln Cent has been a mainstay of American currency. Now, the U.S Mint is issuing three new cents that bear the West Point Mint’s “W” mint mark, the first of their kind!
