The Flying Eagle cent was our first small size cent and was struck for three years, 1856-1858. The Philadelphia Mint released the new cents to the public in May of 1857. On the day of its release, hundreds of people lined up to exchange their old coins, for this new fascinating small sized cent. In fact, the public interest in these Flying Eagle Cents set off a coin collecting boom. Collectors paid up to Two Dollars for these coins, which at the time was unheard of. Unfortunately, this coins existence was limited and the Mint introduced the Indian Head penny in 1859.
