Liberty Head Large Cent

In 1816, designer Robert Scot designed a large cent for the U.S. Mint. The coin was comprised of 100 percent copper and had a plain edge. The coin weighed 10.89 grams with a diameter of 28 to 29 millimeters. That’s almost as big as a half dollar at 30.6 millimeters and almost as heavy as one at 11.34 grams! The obverse of the coin had a portrait of Lady Liberty and on the reverse of the coin was a wreath with the inscription “One Cent” in the center.

Silver coin usage and significance: From the ancient times of the Bible to modern day

We see that silver has been used even in the earliest times as exhibited in the Old Testament when, in Genesis 23:15 Ephron tells Abraham that he will sell the Cave of Machpelah, which is currently in the modern city of Hebron, Israel, to him for 400 silver shekels.
