What is a 1873-P Shield Two Cent Coin?

The 1873-P Proof Shield Two Cent Coin is a coin that was produced at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $0.02. As a "Proof" coin, it was manufactured in a limited quantity, which makes it generally more rare than "business strike" or "mint strike" coins which are intended for use in daily transactions. With such a low mintage of only 500, there are likely few of these items available for purchase or at auction in a year. This coin was the last one produced of the Shield Two Cents series. This coin does not contain any notable amounts of precious metals.
