"This is a momentous occasion in the history of our Nation’s coinage because these designs represent the first change in the Lincoln cent in half a century," said Director Moy when the designs were revealed. 

"These coins are a tribute to one of our greatest Presidents whose legacy has had a lasting impact on our country.  He believed all men were created equal, and his life was a model for accomplishing the American dream through honesty, integrity, loyalty, and a lifetime of education."

Additionally, commemorative 2009 Abraham Lincoln Silver Dollar Coin designs were revealed by the Mint on Nov. 19, 2008 during the annual Dedication Day Ceremony at Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
