  • Description:
    Copper-nickel Indian Head cents were minted annually from 1859 through 1864, with a total of about 158 million being made—all in Philadelphia. Proofs were struck each year as well. The series contains no great rarities, and the only major variety is an 1860 cent on which the Indian’s bust is pointed, rather than rounded. Because the series is so short and has no real “stoppers,” many collect it by date. Many others prefer to collect it by type, acquiring one example of the 1859 and one to represent the years from 1860 through 1864, when the reverse was different.

★★★★★ Better than Expected

This coin was one of several ordered for my son's birthday. I was impressed with the packaging, the labeling, and the quality of the coin itself. It was better than I expected and I will definitely come to Golden Eagle again for similar purchases.
