Washington cents are truly important pieces of history. They were struck in 1791 to honor the General of the Continental Armies and our first President. Although the war wounds were still fresh, many pieces honoring George Washington were struck in England intending to be sold in the newly-formed United States. We are uncertain as to where and to whom struck this Washington copper coin. These were intended by the minter to persuade the new US government to consider these large copper medals to be used as our first cents, a move which Washington himself opposed. This is the keystone of any advanced colonial collection.
