Thomas Jefferson married his wife, Martha, in 1772. Unfortunately, Martha died in 1782 leaving Jefferson a widower when he took office in 1800.
This Liberty is based on the Draped Bust Half-Cent executed by Robert Scot and minted 1800-1808, during Jefferson’s Presidency. The reverse, or tails side, contains an image designed and sculpted by Charles Vickers of Thomas Jefferson’s monument, located at Monticello. It also contains the epitaph which he wrote before his death:
"Here was buried Thomas Jefferson, author of the declaration of American independence, of the statute of Virginia for religious freedom and father of the University of Virginia. Born April 2, 1743, O.S. Died July 4, 1826."
