2009 Professional Life Lincoln Cent Released

Yesterday the third 2009 Lincoln Cent design was released. This design features a young, professional Lincoln standing in front of the Illinois State Capitol building. The release into circulation was accompanied by an official ceremony and opportunities for exchanging coins at face value.

Following the ceremony, there was a coin exchange where people could switch currency for fresh rolls of the new coins. This opportunity has provided a huge draw for past ceremonies.

The US Mint also hosted coin exchanges at two locations in Washington, DC.

Finally, the US Mint put Two Roll Sets of the new 2009 Lincoln Cents on sale on their website. The sets are offered for $8.95. This is quite a premium, but I guess its the price you have to pay if you can’t make it to Springfield or Washington!
