This

The Boston Massacre, known to the British as the “Incident on King Street”, was a confrontation on March 5, 1770 in which British soldiers shot and killed several people while being harassed by a mob in front of the Old State House, Boston. The event was heavily publicized by leading Patriots such as Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 2 oz of .999 fine Silver with an impressive 65 mm diameter.
  • Coin comes packaged in an innovative clear suspension display case along with certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: Features an American bald eagle atop the liberty tree, a famous elm tree that stood in Boston near Boston Common, in the years before the American Revolution. In 1765, colonists in Boston staged the first act of defiance against the British government at the tree. The tree became a rallying point for the growing resistance to the rule of Britain over the American colonies, and the ground surrounding it became known as Liberty Hall. The Liberty Tree was felled by Loyalist Nathaniel Coffin Jr. in August 1775.
  • Reverse: Features the famous image produced in full color by Paul Revere, entitled "Boston Massacre".

British troops had been stationed in the Province of Massachusetts Bay since 1768 in order to support crown-appointed officials and to enforce unpopular Parliamentary legislation. Amid tense relations between the civilians and the soldiers, a mob formed around a British sentry and verbally abused him. He was eventually supported by eight additional soldiers, who were hit by clubs, stones, and snowballs. They fired into the crowd without orders, instantly killing three people and wounding others, two of whom later died of their wounds.

The crowd eventually dispersed after acting Governor Thomas Hutchinson promised an inquiry, but they re-formed the next day, prompting withdrawal of the troops to Castle Island. Eight soldiers, one officer, and four civilians were arrested and charged with murder, and they were defended by future President John Adams. Six of the soldiers were acquitted; the other two were convicted of manslaughter and given reduced sentences. The men found guilty of manslaughter were sentenced to branding on their hand. Depictions, reports, and propaganda about the event heightened tensions throughout the Thirteen Colonies. The most notable depiction was the colored engraving produced by Paul Revere, entitled “Boston Massacre”.
