This specific motto was requested in response to a Nationwide sense of returnto religiousvalues and an attempt to place the "Almighty" as a covering force over the country, which was in the midst of terminatingits Civil War.Yet unpopular, but curiously accepted the two cents coin did not cross a full decade in minting quantities, never to be produced again after 1873.A great American coin item to collect and share, still sought heavily in our days. NGC data claims that many in pristine mint status or condition have been sold for over $1,100 a piece. Some have reached higher prizes due to uncirculated and well kept conditions. Thanks for your visit and comments bellow.
