The Indian Head Penny was first introduced in 1859, a design that lasted until 1909. Mint Director James Ross Snowden selected the Indian Head design, and Mint Chief
Engraver, James Barton Longacre, designed the coin. The simplicity of the coin satisfied everyone. The Indian Head Cent remained in use for half a century before being
replaced by the Lincoln cent in 1909. All issues were minted at the Philadelphia Mint, except for the last two years when the San Francisco Branch Mint struck India Head Pennies
in 1908 and 1909. All in all, the total production of the Indian Head cent was 1,849,648,000 pieces. Despite being produced more than a century ago, this one-cent American
penny is still relatively common, likely due to its post-Civil War popularity.
