Classic Presidential Designs
The coins of each respective denomination share the same designs for each year, a testament to how long those designs featured unchanged on America's coinage. Each obverse features a portrait of an American President. Each set includes a Kennedy Half Dollar, a Washington Quarter, a Roosevelt Dime, a Jefferson Nickel, and a Lincoln Cent. President Lincoln is depicted in right-side profile, while the others all face left.
While the obverses all have similar themes, the reverses are more diverse. The half dollar features the Presidential seal, while the quarter bears an eagle perched on arrows that are wrapped in an olive branch. The dime has a torch between two branches. President Jefferson's famous home, Monticello, serves as the reverse of the nickel, while the famous Lincoln Memorial is on the penny.
