Take home a piece of American World War II history! This gorgeous set of three nonmonetary 24k gold plated steel pennies pays homage to one of America's most iconic wartime coins - the 1943 steel cent. Coveted by coin collectors the world over, the "steelie" - as it was affectionately known - was a US one cent coin that was struck from steel due to wartime shortages of copper, which was needed for ammunition and other military equipment during the Second World War. To commemorate this special wartime penny, the Merrick Mint has released this elegant set of three nonmonetary tribute pennies that combines the design of the legendary 1943 "Lincoln penny" on the obverse with the famous "Lincoln Memorial penny" on the reverse. Each coin is commemoratively dated "1943," with "WWII" inscribed just above the year marks. They're more than 3/4" in diameter and nearly double the thickness of their circulating counterparts. Fully clad in sumptuous 24k gold, this set of three collectible nonmonetary pennies looks amazing in any coin collection and is only available through this special private minting. Don't delay! We've got one of the few stashes of coins from this extremely limited run, so reserve yours today before they're gone forever!
