Likeness of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson is depicted on the obverse in a left facing pose, framed by the inscription "TH. JEFFERSON PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. A.D. 1801."
Featured on the reverse is a pair of hands clasped in a symbolic handshake of friendship between the U.S. government and the Native American nations, one wrist shown wearing a metal Native American style bracelet, the other adorned with the braided cuff of a military officer. The image created by John Reich includes a crossed peace pipe and tomahawk, along with the inscription "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP."

You probably know that the recently-issued 2019 Apollo 11 50th anniversary $1 silver commemorative coins, are the first U.S. Mint commemoratives struck from .999 fine silver. What you may not know however, is that this trend in “fineness” from the United States Mint is continuing for select releases!
There are three different places where a discussion of presidents and U.S. coinage could start: with George Washington and Lady Liberty, with Thomas Jefferson and William McKinley, or with Abraham Lincoln. As we will see, a lot depends on what “circulating” means and what a “commemorative” is, and deciding what actually counts!
