If you are into coin collection, then you must be familiar with the wheat penny. Also known as the “Wheat Cent” or “Lincoln’s Wheat Penny”, wheat pennies were the classic coin minted from the early 21st century. It was the first coin that features the profile of the 16th president of the US Abraham Lincoln. It was in 1909 when the first wheat penny was released. It was made mostly of copper and has its engraver’s initials inscribed in it. However, shortly after that, the engraver’s initials were removed as it was said to be blatantly displayed.
