Victor D. Brenner designed the Lincoln Cent and his initials appeared on the reverse for a limited time during the first year of issue. The San Francisco issue for the first year, with his initials, is one of the most recognized of all U.S. coins – the 1909-S V.D.B.
Lincoln Cents were issued with a Wheat Ears reverse from 1909 to 1958. From 1959 to the present they have been made with a Memorial reverse.
In 2009, the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, the Mint is planning to introduce a new reverse! Always popular; this series is red hot as there is speculation that the new Lincoln Cent reverse will stimulate additional interest in this series and higher prices for the better dates is on the way!
