(LINCOLN CITY) - A new one cent coin depicting Abraham Lincoln during his youth in Indiana was introduced today at the Lincoln Amphitheater, near the homestead where Lincoln grew up.

The new Indiana penny depicts a young Lincoln educating himself while working as a rail splitter in Indiana.

The design, which is on the "tails side" of the penny, is among four that will be released this year as part of a national celebration of the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth and 100th anniversary of the Lincoln penny.

Each of the new designs represents a period of Lincoln's life.

The first design was released in February in Kentucky, where Lincoln was born.

The penny unveiling is just one of the celebrations taking place at Lincoln state park this year.
