Lincoln Cents (1909 - present)
The history of the Lincoln Cent is much more complex than the result of the creativity of designer Victor D. Brenner. Under President Theodore Roosevelt’s command, the great artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens prepared designs for the new small cent featuring a flying eagle motif on obverse. Instead of the eagle though, Saint-Gaudens and Roosevelt favored a design with a head of Victory in profile wearing an Indian headdress. They liked this design so much that they decided to place it on the 1907 $10 instead. After Saint-Gaudens’ death, Brenner became in charge of the design of the rare cent and Lincoln was chosen as the perfect authentic subject for the wheat cent.
