U.S. Navy Coins
In 1775, George Washington realized a competent naval force was paramount in defeating the British and winning the battle for American independence. Washington was instrumental in persuading the Continental Congress to authorize the formation of the fledgling nation's first navy. While the Continental Navy achieved mixed results during engagements with its British Royal Navy counterpart, it did experience some success in harassing the enemy, particularly when raiding British merchant vessels.
After the war, the government of the newly formed United States of America disbanded the remnants of the Continental Navy. However, a series of attacks on U.S. merchant ships by Barbary pirates led to the passage of the Naval Act of 1794, which authorized the construction of six frigates to thwart the pirate raids. Over the course of more than two centuries, the U.S. Navy has continued to protect and serve our nation's maritime interests, while earning the distinction of being the most capable seafaring fighting force in the world.
