Enjoy low-mintage coins from the early years of our nation with this 2-coin set of Classic Head and Braided Hair half cents. Struck in pure copper and about the size of a quarter, U.S. half cents debuted in 1793 along with large cents as the first coins issued by the U.S. Mint. Produced only at Philadelphia, Classic Head half cents were minted sporadically from 1809-1836, while Braided Hair coins were struck for circulation from 1849 until 1857, when the half cent denomination was discontinued.
These Classic Head and Braided Hair coins of 1828-1855 recall Westward Expansion on the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails, the Mexican-American War and the pre-Civil War era. Your historic half cent set comes in an attractive FREE display case, but supplies are limited – reserve these early American classics today!
