1901 Indian Head Cent Ear Ring
The Indian Head Cent was minted (not printed) from 1859-1909, and still is a common and well known US coin...and good luck finding one in change.
The person on the front is actually a depiction of "Lady Liberty" wearing a headdress and is not actually a Native American.
1859-1864 = 88% copper and 12% nickel.
1864-1909 = 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc.
