The Fugio cent, also referred to as the Franklin cent, is the United States first circulation coin. According to some sources, Benjamin Franklin may have designed the coin, which was minted in 1787. Its design is similar to a dollar coin made in 1776 as potential Continental currency but never issued, which was produced in pattern pieces.
