In 2009 it was the Bicentennial of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. He was US President during the Civil War and was killed for his beliefs. As wise-arse children, we use to joke, ‘so what else happened at the play last night Mrs. Lincoln?’ Lincoln is on billions of coins they make in America every year, the Lincoln Cent. As it is the lowest denomination it is also the most collected. This set was for the 200th anniversary of his birth. There are four different reverse designs and they were struck for only this one year. They are the log cabin where he was born in Kentucky, his formative years in Indiana, his professional life in Illinois and the Presidency in Washington. This set is very difficult to get and it is the first time that we have been able to buy any to offer you. The four different one year only Lincoln Cents in Proof in the Official case of issue.
We've just had a small group of 27 Brilliant Uncirculated United States Mercury Dimes of 10-cent coins come in, there were going to be 50 pieces but only 27 were good enough. They were issued during World War Two and it is considered to be one of America’s most beautiful coins. We normally get this coin in Fine condition but in Brilliant Uncirculated condition it is really a beautiful coin. Get them while you can.
