The Two-Cent Coin was introduced in 1864 to introduce fresh currency to the market at a time when the populace was hoarding their money due to the uncertaint times of the Civil War. Initially a popular coin, it quickly fell out of favor after the introduction of the three-cent coin and the nickel. The Philadelphia Mint ceased production of the coin in 1873, and the government recovered as many of the coins as they could, melting them down for their copper. The two-cent piece's lasting legacy is that it was the first coin to feature the motto "In God We Trust."In 2009, Tokens & Icons featured the 1909 Lincoln Penny to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of its minting.Tokens & Icons take memorabilia to a whole new level.
