First issued over 150 years ago...now one of the scarcest denominations ever minted!
Over 150 years ago, as the Civil War divided the nation and Abraham Lincoln won reelection as president, small-denomination coins such as pennies were hoarded due to uncertainty over the economy. In an effort to solve this problem, the U.S. Mint introduced one of the most unusual and shortest-lived coin series in history: the fascinating two-cent coin. Not only were these the first U.S. coins to feature the motto “In God We Trust,” but they were made in extremely small editions and mintage stopped altogether less than ten years later. There has never been another two-cent coin, making these one of the most intriguing and rarely seen of all U.S. coins.
Most collectors would be thrilled to own just a single two-cent piece, but you now have the opportunity to own not merely one of these captivating and beautiful coins, but each coin minted in the 1860s, from the first in 1864 to the last in 1869 in collectible circulated condition with most design details visible.
