Oversized Commemorative Celebrates One of Our Most Beloved Leaders!

2015 marks the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s death. Just days after the Civil War ended, Lincoln was attending a theater performance in Washington, D.C. when his life was taken by John Wilkes Booth. This Copper Lincoln Commemorative mirrors the Lincoln Memorial Cent with a few noteworthy modifications. Measuring 3.5 inches, it’s 4.6 times larger than the size of a standard Lincoln Cent. This oversized version reflects Lincoln’s birth and death dates 1809-1865, and instead of “Liberty” reads “Lincoln” on the obverse, and “One Cent” on the reverse is replaced by “commemorative.” A beautiful antique finish perfects the look of this grand testament to our revered 16th President - best known for his efforts in abolishing slavery. It wasn’t until 1914 that construction had started on the Lincoln Memorial. There was a message in the materials that came from all parts of the United States - that a country torn apart can together build something beautiful, a metaphor for the reunification of the United States. Any collector would love to keep this as a desk or office centerpiece.
