  • Description:

    The Coin & Currency Set Lewis & Clark 2004 is a captivating tribute to the historic expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, known as the Corps of Discovery, which explored the newly acquired Louisiana Territory and the Pacific Northwest in the early 19th century. Released by the United States Mint in 2004, this set commemorates one of the most significant journeys of exploration in American history.

    The Lewis and Clark expedition, commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson in 1804, aimed to explore and map the vast western territories of the United States, establish trade relations with Native American tribes, and find a practical route to the Pacific Ocean. The expedition lasted over two years and covered thousands of miles, providing invaluable insights into the geography, flora, fauna, and indigenous peoples of the region.

    The design of the Lewis & Clark Coin & Currency Set pays homage to the spirit of exploration and discovery that characterized the expedition. The set typically includes a commemorative silver dollar and a replica of the original Jefferson Peace Medal, which was presented by Lewis and Clark to Native American chiefs as a symbol of friendship and goodwill.

    The minting of the Lewis & Clark commemorative silver dollar was authorized by Congress under the terms of the United States Commemorative Coin Act of 1996. The coins were struck at the United States Mint facilities in Philadelphia and Denver, using .900 fine silver and modern minting techniques to ensure the highest quality and detail.

    The mintage of the Lewis & Clark commemorative silver dollar was limited to meet demand and maintain the integrity of the series. While exact mintage figures may vary from year to year, these coins are typically produced in relatively small quantities, making them highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.

    The denomination of the Lewis & Clark commemorative silver dollar is one dollar, reflecting its face value as legal tender in the United States. However, the intrinsic and numismatic value of the coin far exceeds its nominal value, given its silver content and historical significance.

    The condition of the Lewis & Clark commemorative silver dollar in the Coin & Currency Set 2004 is described as Uncirculated, indicating a coin that has never been used in commerce and retains its original mint luster and detail. This suggests that the coin has been well-preserved since its minting and is free from the wear and abrasions commonly associated with circulated coinage.

    In addition to the commemorative silver dollar, the Coin & Currency Set 2004 includes a meticulously crafted replica of the Jefferson Peace Medal. This replica, typically made of bronze or another durable metal, allows collectors to appreciate the historical significance of the original medal and its role in diplomatic relations with Native American tribes.

    The packaging of the Coin & Currency Set 2004 is designed to complement the elegance and historical significance of the coins and medal it contains. Typically, these sets are presented in a protective display case or folder, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and educational materials detailing the history and significance of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
