Nearly 3,000 people gathered at a Spencer County, Ind., park May 14 for the U.S. Mint’s release of a new penny that pays homage to Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood years.
Several local residents attended the penny’s release at Lincoln State Park. One reported standing in line about an hour to purchase six rolls of pennies.
The coins depict a teenage Lincoln reading a book while taking a break from rail splitting.
Most of the pennies were sold at face value to coin-collectors; children were presented the coins as souvenirs.
