The End Of the Indian Cent era in one Collection: The Last 30 Years of Indian Head Cents (1880-1909)
The United States Cent is one of the most popular collector coins released by the mint over the last 200 years! The vast majority of their collectability stems from the fact that the U.S. Cent has an extremely unique history in regards to their production, design, diameter, and their historical significance (The United States Mint’s first circulating coin ever produced was the Cent!).
One of the most iconic variations of the United States Cent is the fabled “Indian Head” cent, which was last produced in 1909, Over 100 years ago! Today we are bringing to you, a valued member of our collector family, the largest consecutive Date “Indian Head” Cent Collection we have ever assembled: The Last 30 Years of “Indian Head” Cents!
A Name Given By Collectors, a true-blue piece of Americana!
Now I know a few of you more experienced collectors will say the "Indian Head" cent is actually not an Indian... and you are in fact correct! The moniker “Indian Head Cent” is a term that was actually derived from the collector’s themselves! The profile on the design of the “Indian Head” cent is actually the image of our own “Lady Liberty” wearing an Indian Headdress, not an actual Native American.
