Before the “wheat penny” and before the penny we have now there was the “Indian Head Penny’. These are very old pennies dating from 1859-1909. The coins offered here range from 1864-1909. Due to their heavy circulation, these coins are pretty worn but due to the high contrast design you can typically make out a lot of the image, words and date. Each roll contains 50 coins of varying condition and dates depending on stock on hand. 


Key features:

  • Each roll contains 50 coins
  • Dates of coins may range from 1864-1909 but most dates will be the 1900s
  • Obverse side of coin has a Native American wearing a headdress
  • Reverse side has a shield and ‘ONE CENT’ framed by laurel leaves


The Indian Head penny came on the heels of the flying eagle design penny which had several problems in production. The mint was looking for a new design and James E Longacre’s design was selected. Looking at the design, many found that the ‘Native American’ in the design was decidedly Caucasian. Legend spread that Longacre used his daughter as the model for the design. He later admitted that it was a statue, Crouching Venus on loan from the Vatican that inspired the facial features. Another criticism was that you now have the image of a woman wearing the headdress of the Native Americans that is worn by the men. Despite these criticisms, this coin is maybe one of the most beloved designs and is highly sought after. This is the design of the obverse with ‘UNITES STATES OF AMERICA’ framing it and the year of issue at the bottom. 


The reverse side of the coin is far less controversial if not rather plain. The 1958 design just had ‘ONE CENT’ famed by laurel leaves and ‘1958’. Apparently, they realized how plain this was and decided to change the laurel leaves to oak leaves and added a shield at the top of the coin. 


Here is your chance to get 50 Indian Head Cents without fishing around trying to find them. This assortment comes in a roll and has varying dates and conditions depending on stock on hand. Get yours today.
