Indian Head Cent (Year Varies)

Indian Head Cent (Year Varies). The Indian Head Cent was produced by the U.S. Mint from 1859 to 1909. Designed by James B. Longacre, the obverse features a depiction of Liberty in a headdress (which is commonly mistaken for Native American figure), while the reverse features the words “ONE CENT” surrounded by a wreath. It was produced in three varieties. The first, an 88% copper and 12% nickel composition, features a laurel wreath on the reverse and was only released in 1859 from the Philadelphia Mint.  The second variety (1860-1864) differs from the first in that the wreath on the reverse has a shield above the words “ONE CENT”. The third variety (1864-1909) was made of bronze and produced at the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints. The Indian Head Cent was replaced in 1909 by the Lincoln Cent.
