Picture of the day

US Penny, obverse, 2002

The United States one-cent coin is a unit of currency equaling one 1/100 of a United States dollar. Its obverse has featured the profile of President Abraham Lincoln since 1909, the centennial of his birth. Since 1959, the reverse has featured the Lincoln Memorial.

This 2002 proof Lincoln cent epitomizes the cameo effect.
