Coin designs that were minted for only one year make this a fun collectible card. The One Year Rarities Collection contains the Lincoln Steel Penny minted only in 1943, the four Lincoln Bicentennial Pennies minted only in 2009, the four Westward Journey Nickels, and the Bicentennial Quarter, Half Dollar and Dollar. In 1943 the Lincoln Penny was minted in steel due to the copper shortage during World War II. It is the only coin minted for circulation in the US that can be picked up with a magnet.
The 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial Pennies were minted to celebrate the 200 year anniversary of Lincoln's birth. Each penny shows a different reverse containing an important stage of Lincoln's life. The Westward Journey nickels were minted to honor Lewis and Clark's journey. In 2004 the Peace Medal and Keelboat obverse designs were minted and in 2005 the Bison and Ocean In View were issued. The 1976 Bicentennial Series honors the Colonial drummer, Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The One Year Rarities coins are displayed on a vintage style mat board which is housed in a protective vinyl pocket. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
