We also offer the same bulk purchasing options for Lincoln Steel Pennies in the same wheat design. These Lincoln Steel Pennies, however, are collectible and more valuable due to their limited release. They were only produced in 1943 when the United States suspended the use of copper (and nickel) coins to redeploy these metals for use in the great military effort underway during World War II. They are composed of 100% steel with a slight zinc covering, giving them a silver color. Lincoln Steel Pennies were quickly discontinued because their silver color made them easily confused with the dime. After the war, the U.S. Treasury began to quietly reacquire as many steel versions as possible without publicly saying it was doing so for fear of widespread hoarding. Lincoln Pennies have a mass of 2.5 grams with a diameter of 19.05 millimeters and were minted in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
