The Flying Eagle Cent will add numismatic value to any stack of Bullion. The Flying Eagle Cent was minted as official United States Coinage between 1857 and 1858. Each coin consists of 88% copper and 12% nickel.
The Flying Eagle Cents was designed by the US Mint Chief Engraver, James B. Longacre. The design for this coin was based on the work of Langacre’s predecessor, Christian Gobrecht and the Gobrecht Dollar. The model for Gobrecht and Longacre’s work is not known for certain, but many suspect that their work was based on the anatomy of Peter the Eagle. Peter was a “tame” bird that was fed by workers at the Philadelphia Mint until it was killed by machinery. Peter was reclaimed and stuffed, and now is on display at the Philadelphia Mint.
Because of the extremely narrow dates of mintage, the Flying Eagle Cent is among the rarer US Coins. Add one of these historic coins to you collection today!
