How old is the oldest penny?

Answer

No person or agency has kept track of coins in circulation. This is because pennies have been made of bronze or made of copper-color for about 150 years and have had the Lincoln design on them for about a century. Some of the older coins are unrecognizable to most. It is still possible to find pennies from the 1930s.
