there are 4 different backs for 2009. it was the bicentennial of Lincolns birth. they did a series called the life of Lincoln. they are pretty tough to find in circulation. there was really low mintage that year and it was split between the 4 different types. see if you can find the other 3 designs!

enjoy it for what it is. worth ~1 cent.
i like large cents. I currently have >220 Sheldon varieties and >230 middle date Newcomb varieties.

Hey there Zac!

There are actually four different reverses for the 2009 Lincoln cents as they were commemorating Lincoln's 200th anniversary of his birth in 1809. Each of the four reverses highlight a different era in his life. As a side note, all denominations dated 2009 of all mints tend to have lower mintages and are becoming better dates to collect. I personally pop out of circulation all 2009 denominations myself.

Oh yeah, this coin you have is definitely not worthy of being graded; it is somewhat circulated at that.

Always fun to find 2009 Lincoln cents. Given the pics posted, the coin isn't worth getting graded (well circulated condition). Value is one cent.

If I'm not confusing anything, this coin is dedicated to his work in Illinois.

In 2009, the United States Mint issued four different pennies as part of the Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Program. The program recognized not only of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, but also the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln cent, first appearing in 1909. The themes on the reverses represent the four major aspects of Lincoln's life:

See this link for images: https://www.usmint.gov/learn/coin-a...ial-one-cent

Birth and Early Childhood in Kentucky (1809-1816)
Formative Years in Indiana (1816-1830)
Professional Life in Illinois (1830-1861)
Presidency in Washington, D.C. (1861-1865)

Did you know there are differences in the circulated and uncirculated composition of these coins? The circulating version of these coins uses the same metal content as other modern cents (2.5 percent copper, the rest zinc). The uncirculated version contains the metals used in the original 1909 cent (95 percent copper, 5 percent tin and zinc).

Grading would generally be recommended only on coins that have higher value after grading as seen in this price guide than compared to the cost of the grading fees. With modern coins this tends to be mainly the top condition examples. https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide...s/cents/101/

Welcome, Zac! You asked a great question, one posed quite frequently in fact. Submitting a coin for grading. The first thing to consider is the cost of the coin, being this one cost you face value it wouldn't apply. Second are the grader's fees, some like NGC and PCGS have a membership fee separate from the grading fee which varies based on the service level and slab/label choices. Finally, the shipping cost to and from. In short, and as a general rule, anything totaling $75.00 or more would almost certainly be a loss since most modern coinage is plentiful in the marketplace well below that in mint state grades.

Great information everybody thank you again!
Grading a coin sounds difficult to do but I see graded coins all the time. If I find a coin thats worth a lot would I have to become a member? The websites for PCGS and NGC state there is an alternate way to grade coins through a certified dealer would this way be recommended? Or should I simply pay for a membership?

I have always liked Anacs when starting out due to not having a membership fee for those who have only a couple coins to start or mostly modern coins or varieties that dont have high value, but the resale values always seemed to have been lower than either NGC or PCGS graded coins in my experience so I've suggested NGC when possible for those new to grading once you have a number of them to grade and will continue to get coins that might be worth grading (unless you have inherited or have high dollar value coins), then possibly move to PCGS over time as you grade much more often and have many higher dollar value coins. This is because PCGS has a higher membership fee. I guess you can start instead with ANACS if the $25 (or $10 the first year with an ANA membership) is too much or you are dealing with minor varieties and errors, modern coins and the like more than valuable coins.

There are tons of already graded examples out there from NGC, PCGS, and ANACS and so some people just start buying graded coins from sellers or coin dealers they desire, keeping in mind learning about fraud and not overpaying for what the actual value is by reading books such as the Red Book or doing some online research of sold values https://www.amazon.com/Guide-Book-U.../079484961X/

In normal circulated, those bicentenary coins was around 300 mill. In proof 2 mill. So with data you can see where you stay with your coin. Proof are more prices then circulated.

To amend others: Only the presidency was low strike 100 mill coins of each Mint. In very good condition uncirculated it is collectable, the rest just a history.
