Interesting Facts – Mint Mark Appears Only in Denver and San Francisco Issues. All other coins were minted in Philadelphia. The Lincoln cent coinage represented new directions the mint had begun taking. Of the most notable is that it was the first circulating coin to feature a portrait of an actual person and not that of lady liberty. This spelled the beginning of the end for lady liberty on other denominations in years to come.Being the first coin to depict a real person is not the only “first” status that the cent can claim to. The Lincoln cent was also the first to bear the term “IN GOD WE TRUST”, the first cent ever to be minted at the Denver Mint, and in WWII issue the first and only U.S. circulating coin made of steel.
