When the United States began issuing its first denominations in 1793, the US Mint’s smallest denominations were the half-cent and one-cent coins. Following the abolition of the half-cent in 1857, the US Penny remains the smallest denomination still in production by the United States Mint. Coins issued in this series from 1864 to 1982 maintain some value with 95% copper content. Now, 19 MM CoinSafe Penny Coin Tubes are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com to protect those coins.

These 19 MM CoinSafe Penny Coin Tubes are available to you for purchase with an impressive Snap Tite Lid from CoinSafe that ensures the security of your coins for the life of the tube.

US Pennies are a collectible option for those who value copper as all coins issued from 1864 to 1982 have 95% copper and 5% zinc, with the exception of the famed Steel Cent issued in 1943 during World War II. Only two design programs ran during this period of time. The Indian Head Cent was in circulation starting in 1859 and was redone in 1864 to adopt the 95% copper standard that continued through the many iterations of the Lincoln Cent, with the latter introduced in 1909. The reverse of the Lincoln Cent features two reverse designs during this era: Wheat Penny from 1909 to 1958 and Lincoln Memorial from 1959 to 1982.
