Take home a piece of American World War II history! This distinctive multicolored set of three nonmonetary 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 striking set of three nonmonetary tribute pennies, each plated in a different rare metal. The result is a dazzling feast for the eyes that is sure to jazz up and embolden any coin collection. One of the pennies is plated in black ruthenium; the second, .999 percent pure fine silver; and the third, 24k gold. All three coins combine 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 rare metals, this unique 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!
