There were several varieties of large cent minted in 1793 and all are considered to be quite rare. Make sure your coin doesn't have the word COPY worked into the design in small letters, which would indicate it's a modern replica.

If the word COPY isn't on your coin, it should be inspected by a professional dealer or appraiser. Depending on variety and condition, retail prices as of 10/2010 can start at $1300 or so, and run all the way up to over a million dollars.

The US Large Cent was first struck in 1793 under the authority of the United States Govenrment. These coins were minted every year from 1793 through 1857 with the exception of 1815 when a copper shortage prevented production. The large size of these cents was a result of laws which required the cent to be twice the weight of a half cent. By 1857 the cost of producing large copper coins had risen. The result was the half cent was discontinued and the Large cent was replaced with the smaller cents that are familiar today.


You may want to review your coin again - the US Treasury did not mint its frst cent until 1793 (Flowing Hair Large cent, Chain Reverse), followed by the Liberty Cap Large cent (1793-1796).

They have no special value because they're the same each year.
