US Large Cent Liberty Head 1848.


The 1848 Liberty Head Large Cent is one of those coins that are attractive to just about every coin collector. Not only is it very old, but it is also of great historical significant simply because of the time period during which it was minted. Bring that the total number of these coins is decreasing steadily over time, there has never been a better time to get your hands on one.

On the obverse side of the 1848 Large Cent, you will find in the centre the image of Lady Liberty. A band which is resting on her head has the word “Liberty” inscribed in it, while the 1848 year of minting is inscribed just below the central image. Arching over the central image and almost surrounding it are 13 stars, representative of the 13 original colonies of the United States.

The coin’s reverse is a good bit simpler, and instead of any imagery in the centre, you will find the “One Cent” face value inscribed. Surrounding the central face value is a detailed wreath. Around the outside of that is another inscription, this one reading “The United States of America.” Finally, it must also be mentioned that the very outer edges of the Large Cent feature raised rays, which give the coin a bit of added texture.
