2010 Lincoln Cent Design Proposal LP-13 features the Union Shield, which was a prominent symbol during the Civil War era. The motto “E Pluribus Unum is on the upper horizontal bar of the shield, allowing for fuller design elements. The denomination is included on a scroll in the foreground of the shield. This design was recommended by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee and ultimately chosen by the Treasury Secretary as the new design for the Lincoln Cent for 2010 and beyond.
