Indian Head Penny

In 1858, the U.S. Mint asked Chief Engraver James B. Longacre to redesign his Flying Eagle Penny because it was very difficult to strike. He abandoned the eagle motif and re-introduced the more traditional Liberty portrait. This time, however, he presented the youthful Miss Liberty as a Native American wearing an Indian headdress with the word LIBERTY on the band. According to legend, Longacremodeled the image after his own daughter, Sarah. Longacre's exquisite Indian Head design was introduced in 1859 and continued with few alterations until 1909, when it was replaced by the Lincoln Penny.

In recent years, Indian Head Pennies have become increasingly hard to find. Once plentiful, most of these historic coins have found a place in private collections or have been made into jewelry.

American Mint has been able to acquire a very limited supply of these classic American coins in "Very Fine" condition and are making them available.
