In 1797, after being convinced of how lucrative it could be, George Washington opened a whiskey distillery at Mount Vernon. The distillery was a success and Washington had gone from producing 600 gallons to 11,000 gallons a year by the time of his death in 1799, making him the largest whiskey producer in America. Could this 1797 silver dollar have been used to purchase a bottle of whiskey mad by George Washington?
