The Half Cents and Large Cents were the first coins issued for circulation by the United States Mint beginning in 1793. The Half Cent is the smallest denomination coin ever struck by the Mint and was issued in 4 different design types intermittently from 1793 to 1857. In 1857 the denomination was abandoned as the cost to produce it exceeded the face value of the coin. Half Cents are collected both as type coins as well as in sets as the various series’ within the denomination possess many rare and valuable varieties prized by specialists.
