20 cent coins were only made for four years: 1875-1878

In the US there are pennies and there were 2 cent coins but they're not the same. Pennies are one cent coins. Two cent coins were made from 1864 to 1873, so please check your coin again and post a new question.

One cent coins were never made of gold.

We have never heard of a 10 cent coin called a penny, but at one time there were 1 cent coins called nickels. This happened because the 1 cent coins were made as thick as a nickel.

Currently, there are the following denominations of US coins minted for circulation:1 cent coins (pennies)5 cent coins (nickels)10 cent coins (dimes)25 cent coins (quarters)1 dollar coins (the Native American and Presidential one dollar coins).While these are the only coins currently being produced for general use, there are a number of other coins such as commemorative coins and silver and gold coins that the Government is minting which have varying denominations. These include50 cent coins (half dollars, made of copper-nickel). Halves were minted for circulation until a few years ago but are now only made for collectors due to low demand."silver eagles" (1 oz of silver)"gold eagles" (0.10, 0.25, 0.50, and 1.00 oz of gold)"platinum eagles" (same weights as gold eagles)
