Introduced in 1864, the two-cent coin was created at a time when the nation was in the midst of the Civil War. The devastating conflict had carried on far longer than anyone had predicted and with noend in sight, coins were being hoarded instead of being spent - with many of the them being melted down for their metal content. The U.S. Mint hoped to counter this by creating a two-cent coin that was minted in bronze. At twice the value of a penny, but not as big and clunky as a nickel, the two-cent coin was embraced by the American public for the first few years of production.
Designed by James B. Longacre, one of the greatest coin designers in American history, the two-cent coin held the distinction of being the very first coin in American history to carry the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST. After the war ended in 1865, the public's attitude started to change and the twocent coin became unfashionable and unpopular. After nine years of declining production, the two cent piece was finally retired in 1873 and the denomination was never used on a coin again.
An average collector may be unaware of this unique coin's existence, but you will certainly want to own this genuine two-cent coinfrom the first two years of issue. Savvy collectors like you know the importance of having such a numismatic rarity in their collection. And with a real coin that was around when the Civil War endedand Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, its like holding American history in your hand.
