Lincoln Dollar

Numismatists have long favored depictions of Lincoln on their coins. He has appeared on literally hundreds of different medals and coins issued over the years. When he was featured on the Illinois Centennial Half Dollar, this became the first of the early commemorative coins to sell out of its entire maximum authorized mintage.

More recently, Lincoln’s bicentennial was celebrated with the issuance of four different reverse designs for the Lincoln Cent and commemrorative silver dollars.

The 2010 Abraham Lincoln Presidential Dollar will be the 16th release in the overall series and the final release for the year. Collectors will be able to purchase numismatic rolls from the US Mint today, or can request the coins at their banks.
