On Monday, the US Mint released four new penny designs to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth in 2009. The new pennies each depict a scene from Lincoln’s life.

The front of the new pennies will retain the Lincoln profile we’re used to seeing. The back of the Lincoln penny will feature one of four scenes, per the US Mint: “...the log cabin in which Lincoln is said to have been born; an image of him reading while working as a log-splitter; a standing pose besides the state capitol in Springfield, Illinois; and a image of the half- finished U.S. Capitol, its state when he was inaugurated in 1861.”
