In 1838 a new design, the Coronet or Liberty Head style, was employed. This motif continued through 1907, with a slight change in the portrait in 1839, and with the addition of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST in 1866.
The Obverse shows Lady Liberty encircled by 13 stars with the word “Liberty” on her hair band. The Reverse features a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast, surrounded by “United States of America” and the denomination. These coins are guaranteed by the U.S. Mint.
