The US struck 2 cent coins from 1864 to 1873, but never a 2.5¢ coin.

However there were $2.50 gold coins up till 1933, and the ubiquitous quarter is an analogous denomination. Neither one fits into a strict decimal coinage system, which would use 20 cent and 2 dollar coins instead.

Assuming that they are current US coins, 2 Dimes and 1 Nickel. If they were obsolete denominations, they could also be a 20 Cent Coin, a 3 Cent Coin and a 2 Cent Coin.

"Cents" is the plural of "cent". This could be a little confusing, so pay attention. Referring to value, you can have 1 cent, 2 cents, 10 cents, 50 cents, etc. Example - apples are 1 cent each, oranges are 2 cents each. Referring to coins, you can have a 1 cent coin, a 5 cent coin, a 10 cent coin, etc. Example 1 - I have a 1 cent coin, a 2 cent coin and a 10 cent coin in my pocket. Example 2 - I have two 1 cent coins, three 2 cent coins and four 10 cent coins in my pocket. You are referring to the coins and describing them by their values.

You are asking about a 2 Aurar coin from Iceland ("ISLAND" is Icelandic for "Iceland"). The value of the coin from a numismatic standpoint would depend on its year and condition. From a foreign exchange standpoint, it is worth well under one US cent.

There are many countries (or regions) that use cents as their minor currency units. They do not all have the same coinage. For example, the US has a 25 cent coin but not a 20 cent coin whereas the Eurozone has a 20 cent coin but not a 25 cent coin. Thus, it is necessary to know which country or region the question refers to. But since you have not bothered to share that crucial bit of information, I cannot provide a more useful answer.
