Product description
July 4, 1776 – It had been over a year since the “shot heard around the world” was fired at Lexington and Concord, lighting the fuse of revolution for the 13 British colonies. In Philadelphia, the Second Continental Congress – presided over by John Hancock – gathered to officially ratify a document that would change history. The Declaration of Independence became this country’s most important document and put forth the ideals of a free society. With bold strokes of a quill pen, John Hancock became the first man to sign the famous document that proclaimed the United States of America would forever be “Of the people, by the people and for the people.”

One of the wealthiest merchants in Boston, John Hancock used his vast fortune to further the cause of the Patriots' fight for independence during the American Revolution. As protégé to Samuel Adams, Hancock began a career as a statesman, eventually serving as the 1st and 3rd Governor of Massachusetts and the president of the Second Continental Congress. Today, John Hancock is remembered as the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence, and his name has become synonymous with signature.

Meticulously designed, this dazzling tribute to John Hancock – the first man to sign the Declaration of Independence – features a highly detailed engraving of this Founding Father on the obverse. Hancock’s famous signature is expertly inscribed in a decorative oval that has been luxuriously accented in 24k gold. This coin is minted to the highest quality “Proof” standard and comes in its own protective capsule to preserve it for generations to come.
