2009 Centennial

Coins | Eriknation

Abraham Lincoln was born 1809 in a log cabin in Kentucky. When he became older helped the family build and eat. Later when he was 9 his mother died. He went on to study law. And he decided to run for president he won the election and chose Andrew Johnson as Vice President. Later he was assassinated in April 15 1865. It was a very sad day. So in 1909 Victor D. Brenner designed the Lincoln after 100 years he was born. And in 2009 they created the Centennial which has four designs.

I bought the set from ANACS.I know I don't like them. This will prove it. I received a P.D.S. All graded a MS 67. That's what they were grading at the time. Some a few higher. So I get it home. With the silver Lincoln with was A MS 69. I was impressed they looked great. Turn a coin over no cert number!! I started to flip. Checked the net. Sure enough they had a phone number to call . I did they said send it back we had a problem with the run and no cert number printed iut. And they had pictures so I knew I was not alone. I said forget it. I know there real. No charge. I said no problem!

I love Lincoln, and he is my favorite president! I have the 2009-P Abe silver dollar commemorative (commem) coming in the mail from the ANA shortly. Here in Utah, the Denver issues are plentiful, but the Philadelphia's are nearly impossible to find! Good blog, thanks!

Yes, nice coins, harder and harder to find in circulation, and certain mintmarks are easier or harder to find based on your location within the country. Keep searching, the different mintmarks are out there and they do surface from time to time. Later!

I agree with Mokie. I'm in Chicago and I have very little problem finding these coins from the Philadelphia Mint. But, trying to find these coins from the Denver Mint is next to impossible. Thx for the info

Abraham Lincoln was a great man. Living near Gettysburg, I have traveled to see where he spoke. Love the Lincoln Cents, especially the 1909 VDB.

A really nice grouping, getting harder and harder to find in circulation. But they will never be rare, too many minted.
