The half cent is the smallest denomination of United States coin ever minted. It was first minted in 1793 and last minted in 1857. It was minted in five different appearances. Its size is roughly that of a modern day US quarter.
the Braided Hair Half Cent was designed in 1835 by new Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht. This last major change to the coin updated the obverse by giving Liberty a slimmer, more youthful appearance.
This coin was minted from 1840-49 as proofs only and then in circulation until 1857, after which the half cent was permanently discontinued.
