The United States Mint originally issued pennies starting in 1793 with 100% copper content. Between 1793 and the 1850s, the copper content largely remained at 100% pure copper. In 1859, copper content had been normalized to 95% copper with zinc and tin to ensure the coins could stand up to the rigors of handling during circulation.

In this listing at, you can purchase a canvas bag that contains a total of 5,000 Wheat Pennies. Most of these coins have 95% copper content and come with common date marks. The most readily available date marks today are those copper pennies struck in the 1940s and 1950s. There is the unique potential for World War II steel cents being in this bag. Steel cents were struck predominantly in 1943 using steel with a zinc plating so copper and tin could be redirected to the war effort.

On the obverse of Wheat Pennies is the right-profile portrait of President Abraham Lincoln. The design of Lincoln was created for the penny in 1909 by Victor David Brennan and his initials were first used on the reverse of the coins in 1909. They were removed from 1910 to 1917, and returned to the coins in 1918 on the obverse over Lincoln’s shoulder.

The reverse side of Wheat Pennies from the United States Mint includes the image of the coin’s nation of issue and denomination. In this case, “One Cent” and “United States of America” are engraved in the center of the design field with wheat stalks surrounding those engravings.
