How $75 worth of Thomas Jefferson’s silver helped launch the U.S. Mint: Inside Coin World: On the morning of July 11, 1792, Thomas Jefferson took a historic two-block stroll through the streets of Philadelphia carrying $75 worth of his own silver.
Each round is edge numbered, packed in a plastic capsule, and is accompanied by a matching numbered certificate of authenticity.
