The first half cent coin minted for the
newly independant United States of
America was minted in 1793.
The US half cent ran almost continuously
from 1793 until 1835, then from 1849 until
the last issue in 1857.
The US currency system is decimal based,
where 1 half cent = 1/200 of a dollar.
All half cent coins show 'Liberty' on the obverse.
