Why purchase this six-coin tribute to the 75th Anniversary of the Steel Cent?

This remarkable set commemorates the 75th Anniversary of the release of the Steel Lincoln Cent. During the Second World War, the need for copper for manufacturing ammunition and other military equipment compelled the U.S. Mint to submit its supply to the war effort. As a result, the 1943 Lincoln Cent was struck from zinc-coated American steel.

Six Magnificent World War II Era Coins

In addition to the 1943 Steel Lincoln Cent, the set includes the following coins issued by the U.S. Mint: a 1943 Jefferson War Nickel, 1943 Mercury Dime, a 1943 Walking Liberty Half Dollar and a 1944 Lincoln Cent, which was struck with melted down brass/copper shell casings from the war. The final piece of the set, a Belgium 2 Franc coin, was minted in the U.S. in 1944, struck using the Steel Cent planchets.

Custom Designed Presentation Box with Story Card

The six coins dated 1943-1944 included in this collection commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Steel Cent are each encapsulated, then attractively assembled together in an elegant display box. The coins are presented in ungraded condition, possessing a variety of strike and surface characteristics, with moderate circulation wear. An informative story card is included with the set, which describes each of the six coins and their significance to the set.

This exceptional set of circulated World War II coins will make an exciting addition to your collection! Purchase the beautifully packaged Steel Cent 75th Anniversary Set from MCM today!
