One Cent, Coin Type from United States - detailed information

One Cent, Coin Type from United States (issued 1793 - )
Coin TypeOne Cent

The United States one-cent coin (often called a penny) is a unit of currency equalling one-hundredth of a United States dollar. The cent's symbol is ¢. It has been the lowest-value physical unit of U.S. currency since the abolition of the half-cent in 1857. The coin's obverse has featured the profile of President Abraham Lincoln since 1909, the centennial of his birth. From 1959 (the sesquicentennial, or 150 years anniversary, of Lincoln's birth) to 2008, the reverse featured the Lincoln Memorial. Four different reverse designs in 2009 honoured Lincoln's 200th birthday and a new, "permanent" reverse - the Union Shield - was introduced in 2010. The coin is 0.75 inches (19.05 mm) in diameter and 0.0598 inches (1.52 mm) in thickness. Its weight has varied, depending upon the composition of metals used in its production. Initially it was large and made of copper, then smaller and copper-nickel for a short period, then even smaller and made of bronze (to 1982) or copper-clad zinc (1982 to present) with the exception of 1943 when the coin was made of steel.

The coins were initially struck exclusively by the Philadelphia Mint from 1793 to 1907, then also the San Francisco Mint (since 1909, mint mark S) and the Denver Mint (since 1911, mint mark D). The West Point Mint issues collector pennies only (2019, W).

The U.S. Mint's official name for the coin is "cent" and the U.S. Treasury's official name is "one cent piece". The colloquial term "penny" derives from the British coin of the same name, the pre-decimal version of which had a similar place in the British system. In American English, pennies is the plural form. The plural form "pence" - standard in British English - is not used in American English.
