I assume that you're referring to U.S. coins because of the category where you linked this post.

The U.S. issued large-size 1 cent coins from 1793 to 1857. Small cents (the current size) were introduced with a trial series in 1856 and went to full production in 1857, overlapping with large cents during that year.

The 2-cent piece was struck from 1864 to 1873. Interestingly, proposals to resurrect the denomination as a way to reduce the need for pennies have come up every few years since the 1940s, but nothing has ever gone beyond the talking stage.
