Non-magnetic (bronze) set issues (see link below):

In 1999, the Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof Annual sets featured pennies struck using bronze planchets, due to a world shortage of steel.

Reports have been received regarding differing number of beads to both sides:

1998-1999 115 beads on obverse and 113 beads on reverse;
2000-2008 110 beads on obverse and 109 beads on reverse;
