The United States minted half cents intermittently between 1793 and 1857. While this unusual denomination might seem useless today, it was an important part of our monetary system back when working wages were $1 per 10-hour day.

One of the first coins struck at the U.S. Mint was the Large cent. This large, clunky copper coin was struck from 1793 to 1857, inclusive, with the exception of 1815, when a fire forced the closing mall cent was introduced, its predecessor was already antiquated. Twice during the history of the Large cent, the metal content of the coin became so expensive to purchase that the manufacture exceeded its face value. The Large cent had been unpopular since the 1840s.

The United States Two cents is an unusual denomination that first appeared in 1864, during a period of coin shortages caused by the Civil War. The United States Three cents is an unusual denomination that first appeared in 1851, although pattern coins for the denomination were produced in 1849 and 1850. The original purpose of the Three cents coins to provide an intermediate denomination between the cent and Half Dime, making it easier to change some of the odd foreign coins that were legal tender in America at that time. The first Three cents were made of a low-grade silver. These tiny coins were known officially as Trimes and unofficially as fish scales. They were the first circulating U.S. coin without a depiction of Miss Liberty in some form or other.

It may be long forgotten by the general public, but the United States coinage system commenced with a silver 5-cent coin rather than that of nickel composition in use today. The half dime was one of the original denominations introduced almost as soon as the United States coinage system began. The half disme of 1792 was a pattern designed by Thomas Birch. Birch is also remembered for his experimental Birch cent, a coin perhaps better identified with Birch because it bears his name. The coin known popularly as the Nickel, first appeared in 1866. The term Nickel refers to the main component of the alloy used to strike the coin and was meant to differentiate the new coin from another of the same denomination that circulated at the same time - the Half Dime made of silver. Despite the fact that other coins were (and are still being) made primarily of Nickel, the term stuck in reference to the Five cents.

The Twenty-cent Piece was an unusual denomination struck between 1875 and 1878. Because the size of the coin and the design elements were so similar to those on the Quarter dollar, these coins caused a lot of confusion with the general public (similar to the situation that occurred over 100 years later with the Susan B. Anthony dollar).

The United States settled on a decimal currency system rather than the cumbersome pound sterling system of Great Britain or the awkward denomination system based on the silver 8 nomination. The tradition of the U.S. dollar denomination coin was born with the pewter, brass and silver composition 1776 Continental dollar coin varieties. These coins are generally accepted to have been patterns rather than circulation coins, but they paved the way for the tradition of a dollar denomination coin. The first U.S. Silver dollars were struck in 1794 The silver dollar denomination was delayed until 1794, in part due to a problem in requisitioning the necessary silver. Secretary of State Jefferson rather than Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton had initially been placed in charge of the Mint. Since this caused a personal problem between the two men, Hamilton did not cooperate in the necessary requisitions for bullion for striking these coins.

Three dollar gold Pieces were issued every year from 1854 to 1889. This unusual denomination boasts an indirect tie-in with the stamp collecting community -- the price of a first class postage stamp was 3¢ during the years in which this denomination was minted. Thus, the $3.00 gold Piece was perfect for purchasing a complete sheet of 100 stamps The purpose of the $4 gold coin was to facilitate international trade and travel for Americans-the same motivation behind the 1874 Bickford eagle and other gold patterns. Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber prepared an obverse design that depicted a portrait of Liberty facing left with long, flowing hair. Meanwhile, George Morgan created a motif featuring a portrait with the hair coiled up in a bun. Denominated as ONE STELLA (so named after the large star on the reverse), the $4 gold pieces were minted in both 1879 and 1880 in a variety of metals, including gold, copper, and aluminum.

The Coinage Act Of April 2, 1792, established The New U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, which soon became known As Ye Old Mint. However, gold coinage was not introduced until 1795 when the Director Of The Mint, Henry William De Saussure, delivered America's first two gold coins To America's first president, George Washington. Designed by Chief Engraver Robert Scot, collectors today formally refer to the design of this Half Eagle as the Capped Bust to right obverse with small eagle reverse. The obverse features Miss Liberty facing right, wearing the traditional Phrygian cap worn By freed slaves in ancient Rome to signify their emancipated status. During the 18th Century, The red Phrygian cap was held aloft on a pole during the Revolutionary War and the French Revolution and soon evolved into a symbol of liberty. The small eagle on the reverse is said to have been taken from a 1st century B.C. Roman onyx cameo depicting an eagle perched on a palm branch, it's wings outstretched, holding a circular wreath in its beak. The small eagle on the reverse is said to have been taken from a 1st century B.C. Roman onyx cameo depicting an eagle perched on a palm branch, it's wings outstretched, holding a circular wreath in its beak. There is no mark or indication of value since, at the time, gold coins were valued in commerce by their weight and metallic content.

The Act of April 2, 1792 authorized a U.S. Mint in Philadelphia and coin denominations through a gold $10 eagle with a weight of 270 grains of gold. Copper and silver composition coins were produced beginning in 1793, however it was not until 1795 that the first gold coins were produced. The problem was not the supply of gold. The chief coiner and minter were each required to post a $10,000 bond prior to being allowed to produce gold coins. Special arrangements were finally arranged so the gold denominations could be introduced. Virtually all the early gold coins struck through 1833 are scarce to rare.1 Mintage figures were low. The survival rate was also low. The purchasing power of the individual coins was tremendous, keeping most gold coins out of the hands of the average person. Coins of denominations as high as $10 were typically used for bank transfers rather than as pocket change or spending money. As an example, in 1818 a farm laborer earned an average of $9.45 per month in the United States. An artisan working in Philadelphia earned an average of $11.16 for a six-day work week, while a laborer in the same city earned $6 for the same six-day work week. By the time of the Civil War, in 1864, a carpenter working on the Erie Canal earned $13.50 for a six-day work week. In 1900 a manufacturing worker was earning an average of $487 per year or about $9.37 per week.2 A coin of the eagle or $10 denomination would not be in the pocket of too many people, considering it represented the wages for a week at the time.

A Double Eagle is a gold coin of the United States with a denomination of $20. (It of 0.9675 troy oz was worth $20 at the then official price of $20.67/oz). The coins are made from a 90% gold (0.900 fine = 21.6 kt) and 10% copper alloy. Although the eagle-based nomenclature for gold U.S. coinage is often assumed to be a nickname, the eagle, half-eagle and quarter-eagle were specifically given these names in the Act of Congress that originally authorized them (&An Act establishing a Mint, and regulating coins of the United States, section 9, April 2, 1792). Likewise, the Double Eagle was specifically created as such by name (An Act to authorize the Coinage of gold dollars and Double Eagles, title and section 1, March 3, 1849). The first double eagle was minted in 1849, coinciding with the California Gold Rush.

Regular issue double eagles come in two major types and six minor varieties as follows:

Liberty Head (Coronet) 1849 - 1907

Liberty Head, no motto, value "Twenty D." 1849 - 1866

Liberty Head, with motto, value "Twenty D." 1866 - 1876

What is a commemorative coin There is no hard and fast rule that covers all instances, but, in general, a commemorative coin is one which was produced with the primary intention of creating a special souvenir to be sold at a premium above face value to commemorate an anniversary, special occasions, or other event. Such pieces differ in design from the regular circulating coinage of the same denominations of their respective eras.

United States gold and silver bullion coins

In 1986, the United States began striking gold and silver bullion coins to compete with world bullion coins such as the Canadian Maple Leaf, the South African Krugerrand, and others. The value of these coins was intended to be tied directly to their metal value, although in some cases (where mintages were low) a collector market has developed. The bullion value of these coins far outstrips their face value.

A distinguishing characteristic of a sovereign nation is the right to issue its own coins. America began exercising that right in 1792.

Prior to 1792, everyday business was conducted using a motley accumulation of tokens, coins, medals and counterfeits issued by private individuals, private mints inside and outside of America, and official mints outside of America. These are known as Colonial coins.

United States Pioneer gold coins

Territorial gold pieces (also referred to as Private and Pioneer gold) are those struck outside the U.S. Mint and not recognized as official issues by the federal government. The pieces so identified are of various shapes, denominations, and degrees of intrinsic value, and were locally required because of the remoteness of the early gold fields from a federal mint and/or an insufficient quantity of official coinage in frontier areas.

United States Private Tokens

Token United States Private Tokens

Privately issued tokens predate the American Revolution, in most cases issued to fill the need for low denomination coins. This area is traditionally broken down into a number periods. The hard times tokens (HTT) and civil war tokens (CWT) are among the better studied and cataloged private issues. The tokens illustrated here represent a tiny fraction of this rich genre.

Pattern coins, Die Trials, Fantasies

From time to time, the United States Mint considers implementing new designs on the coins in circulation. Historically, the Mint developed new designs either internally or through outside competitions. As the selection process narrowed, actual sample coins were made of the various designs. These Pattern coins allowed Mint officials to see how the proposed designs would look in three-dimensional relief, to test for any problems in producing the coins, and to try out new metal alloys. Pattern coins fall into a number of different categories: 1. Both sides were rejected for use on circulating coins. 2. One or both sides were modified slightly before they were used on circulating coins. 3. Either the obverse or the reverse was accepted for use on circulating coins. 4. Both sides were accepted for use on circulating coins, but the metal composition may be different from the one eventually used.
