James Madison and A Written Constitution
A written constitution is a document that explains a country's founding ideals and laws and also details the roles and responsibilities of its various branches and levels of government. A written constitution provides a foundation for a nation's legal and political structure as well as a template for how a government should operate.
The fourth president of the United States, James Madison, was also one of its preeminent founding fathers and a prominent figure in the development of its Constitution. He is said to have written most of the Constitution himself and is frequently referred to as the "Father of the Constitution" due to his significant contributions to its drafting and eventual ratification.
For Madison, a written constitution was essential in order to ensure a government that would be stable enough and functional enough to uphold the rights and liberties of all citizens. He stated that a written constitution would grant the government a clear and sturdy foundation from which to operate as well as aid in preventing the abuse of power. Madison also believed that a written constitution would preserve the rights and freedoms of the people and help to ensure that the government remained accountable to them.
Written in 1787 and enacted in 1788, the U.S. Constitution has been the nation's supreme law of the land for over 200 years. It has significantly influenced the country's progress and the expansion of human liberty. Today, written constitutions form the foundations for governments in numerous free nations around the world.
Founders of Liberty
Founders of Liberty is a unique series of rounds exclusively from APMEX that celebrate the ideas that make freedom possible. These ideas are depicted with symbolic representations on the reverse of each round while the obverse displays a historical figure who either developed the concept or was chosen as the idea's best representative. These rounds feature prominent voices for liberty, including U.S. founding fathers and the men they looked to for inspiration.
Each release in the series features a collectible limited mintage antique round with a special display box and certificate of authenticity alongside unlimited bullion investment rounds of the same design. These bullion rounds can also be acquired in special tamper-evident packaging, which is a great alternative to the antique display round if its limited mintages sell out before you can order.
We are never more than one generation away from losing freedom. Pass these important concepts on as gifts to the next generation or build your Precious Metal holdings in a format that honors the people and ideas that made such prosperity possible.
