Penny for your thoughts on the new penny...

The United States Mint unveiled its new 2010 penny last week, and while the heads side will still be the familiar Lincoln profile, the tails side will be a shield. According to the Mint, “The coin’s new reverse (tails side) design is emblematic of President Abraham Lincoln’s preservation of the United States as a single and united country.” It’s also emblematic of the Burger King king and of Captain America’s original shield.

Ugh, pennies.

What are you seeing in the shield, PopWatchers?
