A New Penny For Your Thoughts

The U.S. Mint is getting ready to release four new versions of the penny next year, the first redesign it’s had in 50 years. Commemorating the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, the first will be released on February 12th. Lincoln will still be on the front, but the back will have new designs depicting four phases of his life: the log cabin he was born in, splitting rails, serving in the Illinois State Capitol, and the U.S. Capitol half finished. If the economic situation doesn’t improve, a fifth penny will be released, showing how the President hopes to save the U.S. Capitol from foreclosure.
