Indian Head Cents were made from 1859 to 1909 with all coins minted in Philadelphia until the final two years when coins were also made in San Francisco.
James Longacre designed the Indian Head Cent which is actually a representation of Liberty wearing an Indian headdress. Indian Head Cents are one of the most popular of all U.S. coins!
