Celebrating 100 Years: The Lincoln Memorial

You have seen it in your pocket change for years. For nearly 50 years it was a focal point of one of the most produced United States coins ever. While the anniversary of the coin itself is not approaching, the historic monument depicted on the reverse of the Lincoln Cent from 1959-2008 is indeed celebrating 100 years. On May 30th, 2022, which also happens to be Memorial Day, the Lincoln Memorial will be celebrating its centennial anniversary.

During the month of May, the National Park Service, in addition to a number of partners and sponsors, have been and will continue to hold commemorative events and activities in honor of the Lincoln Memorial itself and the legacy of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. In person and virtual activities will occur at the memorial and other sites around the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
