History, Information, and Value of 1968-S Lincoln Memorial Cent

Value of 1968-S Lincoln Memorial Cent

The 1968-S Lincoln Memorial Cent is common just like the other cents. However, this cent and San Francisco Mint coins to come are seen much more infrequently than the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. Most investors purchased bags of the 1968-S and stashed them away. Years later there was a surge on the market of 1968-S cents. The strike will be very uneven and hazy. Most proofs seen will be attractive examples.

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