Wheat Cents 1934 - 1958

Designed by Victor David Brenner, the coin featured Lincoln's profile on the obverse and wheat stalks on the reverse. This unique wheat design quickly earned the coin its popular nickname. The Wheat cent became one of the most recognized and collected coins in American history, minted continuously until 1958, making it one of the longest-running coin designs. With its rich history and iconic design, the Wheat cent holds a special place in the hearts of collectors and enthusiasts alike.
