2: From 1959 to 2008 on the back of the penny is the Lincoln Memorial to celebrate Lincoln's birth. | It's PARTY time let's CELEBRATE! | BRATE!!

3: In 2009 there were four different designs on the back. The design changes that year because it celebrated Lincoln's birthday of 200 years. The designs were where Lincoln was born (in a lodge) and his early childhood.
