The U.S. Mint issued a large cent coin every year from 1793 to 1857, except 1815 due to the war against Great Britain. The Philadelphia Mint produced all large cents, which contained double the copper of the half cent making the coins bulky and larger than present day U.S. Quarter. In 1857, the large cent was officially replaced by the small cent, or what we typcally refer to as the penny. How many are in your collection?
