Two Centuries of Indian Head Pennies

     The Indian Head Penny is one of the most cherished of all United States coins, but it is now long out of circulation and is a treasured addition to any collection.  Minted from 1859 to 1909, it depicts an Indian princess in a war bonnet and was one of the first U.S. coins to feature a Native American. According to legend, designer James B. Longacre actually used a portrait of his daughter, Sarah, wearing an Indian headdress. It is a symbol of America’s westward expansion, as well as a moving tribute to Native Americans in U.S. history.  This collection features two classic United States Indian Head Pennies – one from the 19th century that is now over 120 years old, and one from the 20th century that is at least 110 years old, each in Very Good or better condition.  Accompanying the coins is a U.S. postage stamp issued featuring the obverse of the Indian Head Penny. It is in mint condition despite having been unavailable from post offices for over 40 years!  Comes in a custom presentation with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Actual size is 19 mm
