Mind your business

I found out an interesting fact whilst watching an episode of Stossel this evening. The first official US cent coin, the Fugio Cent, had the words "Mind Your Business" written on it. The coin, designed by Benjamin Franklin, was first issued in 1787. It was not until 1864 that the words "In God We Trust" first appeared on US coins.
