To mark the occasion, the US Mint will also hold a launch ceremony at President Lincoln’s Cottage on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, DC. The ceremony will be held starting at 10:00 AM ET. Lincoln lived at this location for one quarter of his Presidency including the time when he drafted the Emancipation Proclamation. He last visited the cottage the day before his assassination.

Past ceremonies for Lincoln related coins have been widely attended by the public. One of the launches for the 2009 Lincoln Cent was called “Woodstock for coin collectors.”

The 2010 Lincoln Dollar will feature a portrait of the 16th President by Don Everhart with inscriptions indicating his name, order of the Presidency, years of the term, and “In God We Trust”. The reverse, also designed by Everhart, features the Statue of Liberty and inscription “United States of America”.
