What cost 1.23 cents to make and is worth a cent? The Lincoln penny would be the right guess. Today to mark the 200th birthday of Lincoln, the US Mint is releasing the first of four new pennies
. The other three will be released over the course of the year. The backside (reverse) design will be symbolic of various stages in Lincoln's life. I am looking forward to seeing these new coins in my change jar.
the new penny release makes me wonder, with inflation and all, is a penny still worth a penny?
