Rare Lincoln-Kennedy Penny: Are Commemorative Coins Valuable?

The Lincoln-Kennedy penny affixed to a card listing similarities between the two presidents. Rosie wrote us and said she found a penny that has an imprint of Kennedy facing Lincoln on it and wanted to know how much it’s worth.

While I’m certainly no expert on coin values, and I’d highly recommend you consult with a legit numismatist (or Joshua) first, I’m fairly confident that it’s worth very little, except for it’s historic and commemorative value, of course.

That is, unless you find the “right person” who saves collector’s items like these.

How Common Are The Lincoln-Kennedy Pennies?

My mom used to work at a bank.

She brought home a few of these commemorative Lincoln-Kennedy Pennies that were affixed to cards which listed some “astonishing coincidences” between the lives (and deaths) of President Abraham Lincoln and President John F. Kennedy.

Pictured here is the one I’ve managed to save for the past 15-20 years.
