  • Category Washington Cent (Dated 1791)
705

Colonial 1791 XF 40 BN PCGS Wash Cent Sm Eagle This is a low mintage coin

This CENT was designed by John Gregory Hancock by commission of the firm of W. and Alexander Walker of Birmingham England, in the hopes of obtaining a contract from the United States government to produce copper coins. The small eagle cents were minted at Obadiah Westwood's mint in Birmingham, England, where Hancock was employed. George Washington rejected the idea of having his portrait on coins and the notion of contract minting. Nevertheless, the some four thousand copper cents that had been sent over were put in circulation. Roughly 1,500 of these small eagle cents were shipped to the United States.
