    The United States Penny has one of the most interesting production histories of any American coin. First struck in 1793, the US Penny was once a much larger coin by size than it is today and originally featured nearly 100% copper in its metallic alloy. From 1864 to 1982, it boasted 95% copper and went through far fewer design alterations. In fact, since the 1856 transition to the small cent format, the coin has had just three designs. Right now, 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies are available to purchase online from JM Bullion in certified condition.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Arrives in a protective plastic slab courtesy of the PCGS!
    • 1st issue of the Lincoln Wheat Penny!
    • Features the famous 1909 VDB initials!
    • Limited availability of certified coins!
    • Contains 95% copper.
    • Bears a face value of $.01 (USD) backed by the federal government.
    • Issued a Grade of Mint State 66 by the Professional Coin Grading Service.

    Each 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Penny available in this JM Bullion product listing comes to you in a plastic slab with a Mint State 66 certification. Coins in this condition exhibit an above-average mint luster with no more than three or four minor contact marks. It is also possible for a few light hairlines to show under magnification. The RD notation in the label means these coins have a red mint luster.

    The 1909 Lincoln Penny marked the end of the Indian Head Cent and the start of a new era in American coining. While the Lincoln bust remains on the penny to this day, more than 110 years later, the more important feature of this release is what the portrait of Abraham Lincoln meant for the future of American coining. This was the first time an American president featured on such a widely distributed coin. In the decades to come, the likes of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy would all come to grace American circulation coins.

    President Abraham Lincoln features in right-profile relief on the obverse of 1909 Lincoln Wheat Pennies. This bust was created in 1909 for the penny and was first used on the Lincoln Wheat Cent design variation, a program that ran through 1958 before being replaced with the reverse image of the Lincoln Memorial.

    Two wheat stalks are found in the reverse design of the 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Penny. This design offers a view of two wheat stalks surrounding the denomination of the coin. The notable feature of these 1909 pennies is the inclusion of Victor David Brenners VDB initials. This only occurred during the first several months of production in 1909. The coining of pennies was eventually halted and the VDB initials were removed after some public backlash.

      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.

    What happens if my order is lost in transit?+

    All packages shipped by JM Bullion are covered by insurance subject to certain conditions. In the unlikely event that your order is Lost in Transit, you need to contact us immediately. Lost in Transit is defined for the USPS as tracking not having updated in 5 or more calendar days. For UPS, it is 3 calendar days. You must contact us within 7 days since last tracking for USPS and 3 days since last tracking for UPS. If you do not contact us by these timeframes, insurance will not cover the package.

    Once you contact us, we research the shipment with the carrier and begin the claim process. The claims process can take 30 or more days to resolve, and many Lost in Transit shipments end up getting delivered late. If the package is delivered, you must notify us within 24 hours.

    See also Section 13 of our Terms and Conditions.

If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, Ethereum, Ripple, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations.

If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.
