Since the earliest years of the minting of coins in America, there have been denominations which are commonly referred to as “obsolete”, meaning that the denomination is no longer struck. The earliest obsolete denomination is the Half Cent, first struck in 1793. Several other interesting denominations followed: Two Cent Piece, Three Cent Piece, and the very exciting Twenty Cent Piece.
