2010 - Abraham Lincoln presidential dollar D-Roll uncirculated

Presidential dollars were designed to commemorate the US presidents that have led this great country. The United States Mint started this set back in 2007 and are scheduled to release these presidential dollars for years to come. What better way to illustrate the history of the US than to collect these wonderful dollars. Presidential dollars are minted from philadelphia (P), denver (D) and even San Fransisco (S). You can but these coins either uncirculated singles, uncirculated rolls, US mint sets and even us proof sets. Great way to start our next generation of coin collectors by having them make the set of these presidential dollars. If these dollars look like a fun way to collect coins, then you should also see the US state quarters, territory quarters, and even the new "america the beautiful" national park quarters.

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th U.S. President, was born February 12, 1809, near Hodgenville, Ky., into a poor frontier family. A self-taught lawyer, he also served in the Illinois legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1858, while campaigning for a seat in the U.S. Senate, Lincoln engaged incumbent Stephen A. Douglas in a series of debates over slavery. Though he lost the election, Lincoln's eloquence won him national attention, and in 1860, he received the Republican Presidential nomination. Lincoln became President of the United States in 1861 as the Nation descended into the Civil War. While he was President, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed the slaves living in the Confederacy. Although the Confederate States ignored the proclamation, it allowed Union soldiers to free slaves they found in the South and recruit them into their army. By the time the Civil War ended, one out of eight members of the Union Army was black. On November 19, 1863, he delivered his famous Gettysburg Address. His example of assuming sole authority during a time of war was followed by later Presidents, including Woodrow Wilson in World War I and Franklin Roosevelt in World War II. While the Civil War and efforts to abolish slavery dominated his presidency, Lincoln also signed into law the Homestead Act, which made it possible for poor people to buy land provided they agreed to settle and work there for at least five years. This law began the settlement of the American West. On April 14, 1865—only a few weeks into his second administration and just as the Civil War was ending—Lincoln was shot by Southern sympathizer John Wilkes Booth, and died the next morning in Washington, D.C.
