Here's a great opportunity to own an essential in any type collection – a two-cent piece on which the motto in god we trust was struck for the first time. Issued only between 1864 and 1873 to provide change during the cash-strapped Civil War, the short-lived coin proved unpopular with consumers. The mint steadily decreased production of the two cent, and in 1871, only 720,000 were struck for circulation. The coin was discontinued after 1873. Nearly 150 years old, this low-mintage, 1871 two-cent bronze piece comes in a deluxe holder and is an affordable addition to any type collection.
