Additional Notes:  In 1864, during a time of significant change for the United States amidst the Civil War, the 1864 Two Cents Coin was introduced into the currency system. This piece of coinage holds the distinction of being the first to bear the now-familiar motto “In God We Trust”. While it circulated for a brief period, the two-cent piece played an integral role in the evolution of American coinage during a pivotal period in the nation’s history.
