The “Large Cent” coins were minted from 1793 to 1857 at the mint in Philadelphia, the only U.S. Mint at the time. These coins were re-designed every several years during this time period. The coins minted between 1839 and 1857 time period are referred to as the Braided Hair or Petite Head large cent coins. This re-design gave liberty a more youthful and slimmer appearance.
In 1857, the Large Cent was officially replaced by the modern-size one-cent coin we know today as the "penny". One reason, other than the bulk and heaviness of the coin, is that the copper content became more valuable than the coin's face value. People of that time period didn't like to carry the coins because they were so large, heavy, and cumbersome.
