Flying Eagle Cent Mintages

The Flying Eagle Cent was minted for circulation for only two years in 1857 and 1858. It was also minted as a pattern coin in 1856 to demonstrate the format and design of the small cent. Some coins dated 1856 were also subsequently restruck in 1857 and 1858.

During the two years the coins were produced for circulation, mintages were relatively high. As a result, these coins are readily obtainable in circulated grades.

The table below presents the mintage figures for the Flying Eagle Cent series. All coins were struck in Philadelphia without mint marks.
