We are offering an 1803 US half-cent. This coin has a hole put in it from being used as a pendant. There are some small edge tears and a scratch on the reverse. This coin shows no sign of corrosion or environmental damage. In our opinion, this coin displays fine details.

First authorized by the Coinage Act of 1792 on April 2, 1792, the coin was produced in the United States from 1793 to 1857. The half-cent piece was made of 100% copper and was valued at five milles, or one two-hundredth of a dollar. It was slightly smaller than the modern US quarter with diameters 22 mm (1793), 23.5 mm (1794–1836), and 23 mm (1840–1857). Coinage was discontinued by the Coinage Act of February 21, 1857. They were all produced at the Philadelphia Mint.
