Own this iconic US coinage first

Even if you’re not a collector of US coins, you’d be able to instantly recognise the famous motto used on their coinage… ‘In God We Trust’

And today you have the chance to own the VERY FIRST US coin to feature this famous motto – the 2 Cent coin.

Minted for just 10 years – a rare US first

These coins are around 150 years old and not only are they iconic US firsts, but because they were issued during the Civil War they were only minted for 10 years!

They stand as not only one of the shortest lived series of coins in US history, but most importantly they started one of the most famous coinage traditions of all time.

Just 75 available

We’ve managed to bring 75 coins from across the pond for UK collectors. But US coins are extremely collectable, especially amongst UK collectors, so this limited stock won’t be available for long.
