Four Penny Collection
Exquisite 4-coin set shows the evolution of American penny.
  • The copper Large Cent, issued from 1816-1857, was about the size of a half dollar and weighed 10.89 grams.
  • The copper/nickel Flying Eagle Cent, issued from 1856-1858, boasted a more demure size and weight, making it less expensive to produce, and featured a flying eagle on the obverse.
  • The Indian Head Penny circulated from 1859-1909, with Lady Liberty wearing a Native American headdress on the obverse, and an oak wreath and small shield on the reverse.
  • The Lincoln Wheat Penny made its debut in 1909, replacing the Indian Head Penny, and becoming the first portrait coin.
These historical coins arrive individually encapsulated and collectively giftboxed. Mint years vary.
