Dansco Album #8102 Lincoln Memorial - Cents 1959 to 2009 with proof
Dansco Coin Albums have been a longtime companion for both expert numismatists and beginning coin collectors. The Lincoln Cents 1959 to 2009 with Proof Dansco Album comes in a 3/4" binder and holds up to 180 coins. The album has 5 Dansco pages (series: 8100-5 to 8100-9, 7100-5, 8102-1 to 8102-5, 7102-1), each one holding and displaying all Lincoln cents minted from 1959 to 2009 including the proof coins. In 1959 the cent coin had seen a new design. The reverse of the coin had the Lincoln Memorial, and the new design would be seen on all cents minted until 2008. In 2009 Lincoln Cent coins were struck with four new different reverse designs to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth. Lincoln cents from 1959-1982 are made of 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc; each weighs 3.11 grams. Lincoln cents from 1982 to Date are made of copper-plated zinc (core: 0.992 zinc, 0.008 copper; with a plating of pure copper) and each weighs 2.5 grams. All Lincoln cents measure 19 mm in diameter. Dansco Coin Albums have their pages attached with metal screws, making it easy to add and replace.
