History, Information, and Value of 1974-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

Value of 1974-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

The 1974-D Lincoln Memorial Cent is common and found in all grades. Much like the 1974 cent, the 1974-D also had an aluminum version made. However, only one coin was made for testing purposes. A law suit is in action between Randall Lawrence and the U.S. Government. The government suspects that the coin was illegally removed from the Mint by Lawrence’s father, former Deputy Director of the Mint. Therefore it would be U.S. Government property. If you have seen another example of this coin, please contact us to have the coin tested and verified.

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.
