History of the Design
Designed to celebrate the heroism of George Washington, the design of this silver coin was originally a part of an 11 medal series celebrating the heroism of George Washington, with each commemorating a victory. The original punch die was created by Monnaie de Paris's General Engraver, Benjamin Duvivier in 1789.

This is the second coin in the series after the arrival of Lafayette in Boston. The coin is another stunning proof from the Paris mint. I hope they will continue to show other countries mints how to make products you'll cherish for years to come. On a side note, to remove the capsule to see both sides, simply push in on the bottom. The top will lift out and can be easily removed.
