New Lincoln Pennies

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?
