An extraordinary collection featuring some of America’s most historic yet rarely seen coins.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.
This collection features not just one, but an impressive set of six two-cent coins minted in the 1860s, from the first in 1864 to the last in 1869. A custom-designed wooden display is included with this Danbury Mint exclusive at no additional cost.
