  • Description:
    For the Classic Head half cent, the first year of production in 1809 saw the largest mintage for the entire series with a little over one million pieces. While the reverse of the coin remained relatively the same from the previous Draped Bust issue (the fraction at the bottom of the wreath was eliminated), the obverse was totally redesigned and engraved by John Reich. Reich created a new image of Miss Liberty with her curly hair fastened with the headband displaying the word "LIBERTY". A number of proof coins were produced during the series but the Mint did not keep accurate records of how many were actually minted for collectors.
