The last major redesign of the US Penny came in 1909. This year saw both the obverse and reverse designs change as the US Mint retired the Indian Head Cent in favor of the first portrait of a former US President on a major circulation coin. The 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, debuted on the US Penny in 1909 and this same obverse bust remains there to this day. Today, certified 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies are available to you online at Silver.com.

The first pennies produced by the United States Mint were released in 1793. Believe it or not, at that point in time the US Mint issued several variations of a Liberty design all at once. The Flowing Hair Chain, Flowing Hair Wreath, and Liberty Cap designs were all released that year, though only the latter saw wide production and use. Between 1796 and 1857, four more designs were used on the penny. However, from 1856 to 2022, just three designs have featured, and the Lincoln Penny design introduced in 1909 has remained in production ever since that date.

All of these 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Penny Coins come in Mint State 66 condition from the PCGS. Coins with this certification have an above-average mint luster remaining with a maximum of four minor contact marks. It is also possible for the coins to feature light hairlines that may only be visible with the aid of magnification. The included RD designation indicates a copper coin with red mint luster.

On the obverse of 1909 Lincoln Wheat Penny Coins is a depiction of President Abraham Lincoln. The 16th President of the United States, Lincoln is often remembered as the savior of the Union for his leadership of the nation during the Civil War. He has featured on the obverse of the US Penny since 1909, making his portrait the longest-running design on any American coin still in use today.

The reverse field of 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies comes with two wheat stalks. These coins are known as VDB Lincoln Wheat Pennies because of the presence of the VDB initials of designer Victor David Brenner. These initials were used only on early 1909 date marks in the series and eventually removed on those Wheat Pennies struck in 1909 after August of that year.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Do you charge sales tax?

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
