Did A Two Cent Coin Ever Exist?

Absolutly - Oh... there goes that word again :-)

But yes, in fact it did.

This is just a peice of American history that goes without saying - except that not many know of it - and no one is saying it.

In 1864 (not 200+ Years Ago) the Congress of the United States of America approved adding " In God We Trust" to the Two-Cent coin.

In 1908 legistlation was passed and "In God We Trust" was mandatory on all coins.

In 1955 "In God We Trust" became mandatory on ALL U.S. coins and paper currency.

In 1956 "In God We Trust" became the national motto of the United States of Ameica.

Just a peice of history as the July Forth day is soon upon us.

God Bless America
