[The New American Two-cent Piece]

The Illustrated London News, vol. 44, no. 1258, p. 507.

May 21, 1864

The new American two-cent piece looks like gold. A wreath of wheat, surrounding "2 cents," and around which are the words "United States of America," form one side. The shield of Liberty and the words "God our Trust" make up the converse side.
