One of the most popular American coin designs from the history of the United States Mint actually appears on the smallest denomination produced for circulation. The effigy of the nation’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, has appeared on the obverse of the US penny since 1909 and pre-1982 specimens remain popular among collectors. There is now a new format for the Lincoln Penny in the domed silver round issues of the American Legacy Collection. Right now, the 1 oz Proof Domed American Legacy Lincoln Penny Silver Round is available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Victor D. Brenner was engaged by the United States Mint in January 1909 to create a new image for the US penny. The one-cent piece was identified as a format for the bust of Abraham Lincoln. The 16th President of the United States and savior of the Union was placed on the US penny in 1909 to mark the centennial of his birth.
President Abraham Lincoln is found on the obverse of 1 oz Proof Domed American Legacy Lincoln Penny Silver Round. There is a commemorative date mark of “1909” to mark the first year of issue for the design, and other markings include “In God We Trust,” “Liberty,” and an “S” mint mark commemorating the original strike of the pennies at the San Francisco Mint.
The obverse of all rounds in the American Legacy Collection boasts a domed surface that brings new life to the effigy of Lincoln. The incredible depth of the visual elements brings his shoulders, hair, and beard right off the surface of the round.
For the reverse, 1 oz Proof Domed American Legacy Lincoln Penny Silver Rounds feature the opposite relief of the Lincoln portrait. Set in left-profile relief on this side, this surface of the round is sunken to create a distinctly different visual compared to the obverse.
