Cent Aware

I guess it’s been off my numismatic radar, but a few days ago I ended up with two shiny pennies with new reverse sides (the obverse side is the same it’s been since 1909).  Using as an excuse the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, they have create four new images to put on the reverse.  Look for them in a pocket near you.

This all leads me to wonder how much longer the penny will endure.
