As the venerable Lincoln Cent marches to its one hundredth anniversary in 2009, there has been a lot of talk about the one year designs and whether the coin will continue its production in 2010. But we cannot forget that it is still the backbone of commerce.
The following video was made for the Boston Herald by Ted Ancher for a story he had written. The video is a narrated slide show talking about the Lincoln cent with the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” playing in the background on a loop. Enjoy!
