History, Information, and Value of 1960-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

Value of 1960-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

Just like the coins from the Philadelphia Mint, the 1960-D Lincoln Memorial Centsfeatured the two different sizes of dates. Collectors hoarded these coins thinking that they would be worth more, but they were proved wrong. These coins were produced in the hundreds of millions, so their value never increased. Most of these coins will be worth face value, especially if found in an attic collection. However, certified at a higher grade, these coins could become desirable.

The text on the Lincoln one cent coin reads as follows. Obverse: LIBERTY; Date; IN GOD WE TRUST; D (Denver) | Reverse: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; E PLURIBUS UNUM; ONE CENT.
