Seldom seen, especially in this lustrous original condition, these exceptional 2¢ pieces are destined to be the stars in any collection. Struck nearly 150 years ago, these Civil-War era coins display beautiful brown or red-brown color.
Introduced in 1864, the 2¢ piece is the first U.S. coin to bear the motto in god we trust. It features a shield on the obverse, a widely used symbol of unity of the times. These historic coins circulated as Generals Grant and Lee traded victories and Sherman marched to the sea. These bronze coins helped make change during the era's severe coin shortage, and were issued for circulation until 1872 – 9 years only (last-year 1873 coins were Proofs).
Each beautiful Mint State 2¢ piece has been hand selected for quality and eye appeal by our experts and certified by either PCGS or NGC. In great demand by collectors today, these elusive coins are scarce in these grades, so get yours today – our supplies are limited!
