Thomas Jefferson Coins
Page through any U.S. history book that covers the founding of our great nation and you're sure to find numerous mentions of Thomas Jefferson. Known as the primary drafter of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson was perhaps the wisest of all the Founding Fathers. A graduate of the College of William and Mary, Jefferson began his career practicing law in his native Virginia. A man of many interests and disciplines, Jefferson's pursuits included religion, philosophy, mechanics, architecture, and horticulture, to name a few.
After America gained its independence from the British, Jefferson became the United States Minister to France and served as the nation's first Secretary of State under George Washington. He was also vice president for four years and served as our third president from 1801-1809. Key accomplishments during the Jefferson presidency included the Louisiana Purchase and the sponsoring of the Lewis and Clark expedition, both of which were instrumental in the growth of the fledgling nation.
