Have you ever seen a giant penny? Measuring 39.2mm, this big, one ounce copper round honors the legacy of the 1909-S VDB Lincoln cent. The Wheat cent was introduced in 1909 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's birth. Minting was halted only three days after it began due to complaints that designer Victor D. Brenner's initials were too prominent.

This is a fabulous item to show the grandkids! They really will believe that I was in a giants home!
I was amazed at the coins size. I had read about these coins, but had never seen one until my order arrived. It's great to look at, and to feel the weight of the coin.
A rare coin at a very reasonable price!
A really nice looking piece
Arrived promptly in protective plastic folder. Brilliant uncirculated condition.
