Special Bicentennial issue composed of 95% copper alloy, 3% zinc and 2% tin. This metal composition was last used on Lincoln cents from 1909-1942. Additionally, all 2009 cents are a one-year type design that will never be produced again.
The Mint sold approximately 771,204 sets of the 2009 Uncirculated Mint Sets, which means that the Satin Finish 2009 Lincoln cents now have the second-lowest mintage in the Lincoln cent series (for non-proof coins that are composed of mostly copper alloy). The four different 2009 Satin Finish Lincoln cents have an even lower mintage than the 1931-S Lincoln cent!
The price of each 2009 Uncirculated Coin Set was originally set at $27.95 each if purchased directly from the U.S. Mint. However, the Mint unexpectedly discontinued selling the 2009 Uncirculated Sets on June 15, 2010. And in return, it created some truly scarce coins, especially if compared to other mintages of non-proof coins in the Lincoln cent series. Purchasing the 2009 Uncirculated Coin Set was the only method that collectors could use to obtain the 2009 Satin Finish Lincoln cents.
Includes each design from both Mints: Log Cabin, Formative Years, Professional Life and Presidency.
