President Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States of America and savior of the Union, was the first president to feature on a widely circulating coin. Presidents dating back to President George Washington believed the practice was too monarchical, but by the early 20th century moods had changed. Right now, 1909-S VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies are available to purchase online at with special PCGS certification and designation.

Each of these 1909-S VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies is available with a Mint State 64 certification from the PCGS. Coins in this condition exhibit average mint luster with several small contact marks clustered in groups and one or two moderate-heavy marks on the surface areas. The included RD designation is for copper coinage and stands for Red, indicating the coins still have 95% of their original red color.

The 1909 Lincoln Wheat Penny is the rarest of the coins in the Wheat Penny range of Lincoln Cents. Struck from 1909 to 1958, only the 1909 coin has the “VDB” initials of Brennan. Located on the reverse of the coin and struck with greater prominence than most initials, this was not popular with the American public. In 1910, his initials were removed. They would later return to the coins in 1918, but were much smaller and located on the obverse instead.

Adding to the rarity of the 1909-S VDB Wheat Penny, which has the “S” mint mark of the San Francisco Mint, is the low mintage. Just 484,000 of these pennies were produced in San Francisco that year for circulation.

On the obverse of 1909-S VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies is the image of President Abraham Lincoln in right-profile relief. This portrait by Brennan was based on an 1864 photograph of Lincoln taken at the studio of Mathew Brady.

The reverse of 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies includes the engravings of “E Pluribus Unum” at the top, with “One Cent” and “United States of America” in the center. The latter two engravings are flanked by wheat stalks, a design used until 1958 on the reverse that led to the naming of these Lincoln cents as the Wheat Pennies.
