The 1951-D Wheat penny was desgined at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt, who lamented the lack of artistic merit in U.S. Currency. Roosevelt originally chose sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, a noted sculptor, to design what became the Wheat Penny. However, when Saint-Gaudens passed away, the job fell to Victor David Brenner. Roosevelt felt that the new cent should honor his fellow Republican Abraham Lincoln because of the impending 100th Anniversary of Lincoln's birth, which came in 1909.
Both the obverse and the reverse of the Wheat Penny were designed by Victor David Brenner, who featured a profile of Lincoln on the obverse along with the word 'Liberty' and the motto 'In God We Trust'. The reverse of the features two ears of durum wheat, which give the coin its common name, as well as the Latin phrase 'E Pluribus Unum,' which means 'out of many, one.' The inclusion of Brenner's initials on the reverse of the coin also caused significant controversy upon the release of the Wheat Penny. Due to a public outcry, stoked by a bit of yellow journalism, the initials were removed from the coin until 1918, when they were placed on Lincoln's shoulder next to the rim.

The wheat penny is a classic iconic early 21st century American coin with a face value of 1 cent that was minted from 1909 to 1956.

247 poker deuces wild. On a personal note we just love searching penny rolls for wheat and indian head pennies. Wheat pennies are still readily found in circulation and because of the relative price of just $25 for a box of these coins, they are cheap and will keep the coin roll searcher on his or her toes.

The Wheat Penny is also known by colelctors as the Wheat Cent. The coin is made out of mostly copper, but steel versions of the coin were issued during World War II.

In 1909 there were V.D.B. and Non V.D.B. marked pennies. VDB were the engraver Victor David Brenners initials. Victor Brenner was a United States sculptor and engraver whos most widely known for..you guessed it..the Penny :) The initials can be found on the reverse of the 1909 coin only. In 1918 they would be added much smaller to the front of the coin near Lincolns shoulder.

All Wheat Pennies are worth more than their face value of .01 cent. A good rule of thumb is that they are worth at least 3 or 4 cents even in poor condition, but those in good condition (not including special years) are worth at least double digit dollars ($10 or more) when purchased or sold in MS-63 condition. Findong a circulated coin in MS-63 is a long shot. You may get lucky and find your Grandma's stash, or maybe pick one up from a bank teller that just got dumped off during the holidays however. So keep your eyes out for a pretty one!

So what are they worth? Well choose a date below and a mint mark and explore for yourself, and be sure to pick up a few rolls of pennies next time you are at the bank.
