Gorgeous Indian Head Cent Imagery

Obverse: A left facing rendition of Lady Liberty is located on the obverse, wearing a traditional Native American Chief's feathered headdress above her gently curling locks. "LIBERTY" inscribed upon her headband, with "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "1863" encircling the portrait.

Reverse: The reverse features a ribbon-tied wreath of oak leaves, with a patriotically striped shield at the topmost point. The coin's "ONE CENT" denomination is boldly inscribed at the center of the wreath. The significance of the oak leaf is derived from ancient Roman history, when Roman commanders wore an oak wreath crown as a symbol of strength, endurance, honor and military prowess.
