What is a 1859-P Indian Penny?

The 1859-P Proof Indian Penny is a coin that was manufactured at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $0.01. As a "Proof" coin, it was produced in a limited quantity, which makes it considered more collectible than "business strike" or "mint strike" coins which are produced for use as a monetary vessel. With such a low mintage of only 800, there are likely few of these items available for purchase or at auction in a year. This coin was minted in the first year of its series, and is a more popular coin to collectors for that reason, but not necessarily to investors. This coin does not contain any notable amounts of precious metals.
