2009 Lincoln Cent Update, Proof Set Sold Out

in 2009 Cent Sales

Lincoln Cent SalesSales for products with 2009 Lincoln Cents were down this week, according to the latest United States Mint sales figures. That's no surprise, because lower sales is typical for most everything from the Mint once the holiday delivery deadline passes.

The most notable news update is that the Lincoln Cent Proof Sets are no longer available from the US Mint. The sets were removed from the Mint web site sometime around Dec. 21. The last total stands at 201,107. The four redesigned pennies made with the same alloy used in the original 1909 penny - 95% copper, 3% zinc and 2% tin - are still available in the US Mint Proof Set and US Mint Uncirculated Set.

The last penny product to be offered, the Presidency Two-Roll Set, is still chugging along but may not be able to reach the same sales levels as the Professional Life or Rail Splitter Two-Roll Sets. It is still unknown what its deadline will be. Sometime in 2010, a new reverse will be placed on the Lincoln penny -- a specific date was missing in last week's US Mint 2010 coin schedule debut.

The following table includes the latest sales for sets and products that include the 2009 pennies:
