In 2009, the United States Mint issued four different one-cent coins to commemorate the 200 year anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's birth and the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln cent. The reverse designs were unveiled September 22 at a ceremony held at the Lincoln Memorial while the obverse continues to assume the likeness of Licoln currently on the one-cent coin. The reverse reflects four different designs, each one representing a different aspect of President Lincoln's life. Aspects include...

• Birth and early childhood in Kentucky (1809-1816)
• Formative years in Indiana (1816-1830)
• Professional Life in Illinois (1830-1861)
• Presidency in Washington, DC (1861-1865)
