|Also known as a wheat penny, this copper coin is a 1952 one-cent piece that was created to commemorate the presidency of the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. This U.S. penny is made of 95 percent copper and 5 percent zinc and features a smooth, non-reeded edge. This copper coin was designed by Victor David Brenner, a sculptor and engraver whose career was defined by the creation of this iconic U.S. penny. The obverse (or “heads” side) of this copper coin is the design that has had the longest run in the history of the US mint. Weighing in at 0.1 oz (3.1 g), this U.S. penny measures 0.75 inches (9 mm) in diameter. This 1952 one-cent piece was part of a circulation print of 137,800,004 pieces and, thanks to its popularity and unique design, has remained a stalwart of any growing coin collection.|
