I’m amazed that I never ever noticed this. It this cross anyone else’s mind? It’s funny to me to think about all the things we use and handle every day but that just flash by and we never take note of. Either way, this is a pretty funny interpretation as to why he’s facing the other way. I wonder if there is an actual reason behind it. Seems strange that just Lincoln is facing to the right.

    In the UK it alternates by monarch (a tradition that dates back to about Elizabeth I I think). So although the Queen faces right on the stamps, it's left on the coins. Charles will face right, of couse, following the alternation rule.

    I believe the reason is those who have been assassinated face right, like Lincoln, whereas those who were not face left.
