It was struck to honor the 250th anniversary of the birth of Jefferson, the Architect of Democracy. The portrait captures the vision and determination of Jefferson, at the time he drafted the preamble to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. On the reverse is a beautifully detailed rendering of Monticello, the impressive Virginia home that Jefferson personally designed. This finest-quality proof features deep-struck engravings with frosted finishes, contrasting with mirror backgrounds.
