Coin Fun Facts
The bison on the Buffalo Nickel once roamed New York City... Named Black Diamond, this bison roamed "The Big Apple" around the turn of the century. And as far as we know, Black Diamond never roamed outside of the Bronx Zoo—his New York City home.
There were copper pennies and white cents? Yes, there were "white cents" that didn't look at all like pennies. These were the Flying Eagle one cent coins of 1856–58 and the Indian Head one cent coins of 1859–64. They were made from metal that contained 88 parts copper to 12 parts nickel, which gave them a light or white color.
"In God We Trust" was first used on coins during the Civil War. This inscription was added to the two-cent piece of 1864. But it didn't become necessary to add it to all coins until 1955. The inscription "E Pluribus Unum," which means "One from Many" (as in one country made from many states) was first used on the gold $5 piece of 1795.
