2010 Lincoln Cent Reverse

Posted in hobbies by dingodonkey on January 21, 2010

The final design for the 2010 (and beyond, it seems) Lincoln Cent reverse has been settled upon. It wasn’t my top choice, but I’m still very happy with it:

I appreciate this design for being a blend of a modern style with a classic American coin motif.  Many today are not aware, but in the 1800s, the shield was a common symbol on American coinage (along with Lady Liberty, who proudly filled the role now reserved for admired presidents).  Many historical examples (making for stunning eye candy) can be seen on cointypes.info/usa.
