A 1900 Indian Head Cent is pretty common and only worth $1 or so in the condition most are found. 1909 was the first year of the Lincoln Cent and the last year of the Indian Head and there are 6 different varieties. A Lincoln with an S mintmark and the initials "VDB" near the lower rim of the reverse is a valueable coin. With the mintmark but not the initials it is still a pretty good find, with the initials but no mintmark it is worth several dollars, and with neither it is back in the $1 or less category. The Indian Cent with an S mintmark is scarce but without it is fairly common. Look just below the date on a Lincoln Cent or on the back of an Indian Head for the mintmark.
Check that date again. Lincoln wasn't on the penny until 1909.
The Wheat Penny did not appear until 1909.
Most Indian head pennies of 1909 are worth between $2.00 and $10.00. However, if the penny is an 1909 S Indian head then it would be worth between $400 to $600 depending on the value grade.
Wheat pennies were not made until 1909. In 1900 the pennies were Indian Head Cents. A 1900 Indian Head cent would be worth about $1 in Good condition (good condition is the fourth worst condition possible).
As of late August 2012 an uncirculated 1909 VDB penny with no mintmark is worth at least $20. In higher uncirculated conditions they can be worth up to $400.
Unfortunately 6 different US "penny's" were made in 1909, 2 Indian Heads and 4 Lincolns. Post new question with more information.

US pennies have never been made of silver.
Wheat pennies first appeared in 1909, so there ARE no 1888 wheats. If you have an Indian head penny dated 1888, it's worth about $2.50.
The penny was founded in 1909 :)
Wheat cents were only made from Mid 1909 to 1958. Your coin is called a Indian Head penny.
