The first small cent was the Flying Eagle Cent, which was actually minted in 1856. The 1856 cent is technically described as a pattern coin, since the law establishing the new small cent was enacted in 1857. It is estimated that 1000 of the 1856 Flying Eagle cent pattern coins were minted.


1857, the US Philadelphia Mint began exchanging old large coppers and foreign silver for Flying Eagle cents.This was a big success.

Peter the Eagle was the model for the bird on the coin. Peter was a bald eagle who took up residence inside the original Philadelphia mint building.


The Flying Eagle Cent was minted only through 1858.A problem with metal flowing into a few design element recesses, while striking led Mint officials to stop producing the coin.

The Mintage of this coin was approx. 1000. This makes it a prefect canidate for conterfeiting it for huge profits.
