The United States Mint is planning to host two exchange locations for rolls of the 2010 Lincoln Cents in Washington, D.C. on this Thursday, February 25, 2010.
These two exchanges were originally scheduled to be on February 11, the same day the official release ceremony was held in Springfield, Illinois. However, due to the two blizzards that struck the nation's capital, the two exchanges planned for D.C. were canceled. Not surprising since those same weather systems resulted in the federal government basically closing down for four days.
But, not wanting to deprive collectors of the opportunity to obtain freshly struck samples of the newest penny, the Mint decided to reschedule the exchange for this Thursday. They will be hosted at the United States Mint’s Headquarters Building at 801 9th St NW, and in Union Station, 50 Massachusetts Avenue NE.
The Mint plans to offer interested individuals two, four or six rolls at a time for face value. The time scheduled is 10AM -4PM (Easter Time), or until supplies of the new strikes are exhausted.
In the past, buyers were allowed to go through the line multiple times, as long as supplies lasted.
