1856 Flying Eagle Cent

The 1856 Flying Eagle Cent was issued as a pattern before the first coins of the series were produced for circulation. Initially, a small number of coins were minted for distribution to members of Congress and other influential individuals. In later years, the United States Mint produced a number of restrikes for collectors.

With an estimated mintage of approximately 2,000, the 1856 Flying Eagle Cent is a rare issue which is always in demand. Although a pattern coin, it is collected like a regular issue of the series.
