Description
 
As the Half Cent became obsolete and the Cent was reduced in size, larger denomination coins were needed. Two-cent coins, twice the weight of the Cents and nearly one inch in diameter, were minted from 1864-1873. The short-lived issue carried the motto “In God We Trust” for the first time, due largely to the increased religious sentiment during the Civil War.
