History, Information, and Value of 1960 Lincoln Memorial Cent

Value of 1960 Lincoln Memorial Cent

The 1960 Lincoln Memorial Cent came with two different varieties. First, there was the Small Date cent, and then there was the Large Date Cent. The easy way to determine which you own is by looking at the “1” and the “9” in the dates. If the “1” lines up with the top of the “9”, then your coin is a small date. If the “1” sits lower than the “9” then your coin is the large date. These two coins were not divided into separate pages because there isn’t a difference of value, unless your coin grades in the PR68+ range. With a high grade coin, the small date would be more desirable. Both of these coins can be found easily in circulated condition.

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

Most Lincoln Memorial $0.01 coins are easily found as circulation coinage. If you are looking to purchase one of these coins, they can typically be found with little difficulty. As always, look for the high grade coins, and if available, try to get a coin that is already certified.
