The two-cent piece is one of the short-lived issues designed by James B. Longacre for the U.S. Mint. The motto "In God We Trust" appeared for the first time on the coin due largely to the increased religious sentiment during the Civil War crisis. All coins were minted at the Philadelphia Mint.
The obverse has the date of the coin and a shield with a ribbon over it bearing the motto, "In God We Trust". Behind the shield are two arrows and a branch with leaves (presumably an olive branch). The reverse has a wreath made up of several different plants surrounding the words "2 Cents" and the words "United States of America" arcs along the top.
