Lincoln Cents Quantities Minted


The Lincoln Cent has been issued for more than one hundred years. During this time the series has had a wide range of mintages amidst some alternations in design.

The series began with the Wheat reverse design which had a duration of 50 years. The following Lincoln Memorial reverse was used for the following 50 years. A new design has been adopted for use into the indefinite future.

Across the entire series, the lowest mintage occurs for the well known key date 1909-S V.D.B. Lincoln Penny. Other low mintages for each within the series occur for the 1914-D and 1931-S issues. In the most recent years, mintages have stretched well into the billions, with the exception of the 2009 Bicentennial issues.

The table below lists the quantities minted for Lincoln Cents by year and mint mark.
