In 1797, presidential power was peacefully passed from George Washington to John Adams and the world looked on with intrigue. The peaceful nature of this political transition showed the world that democracies were a viable political format and laid the groundwork for many 19th century democratic revolutions across the world. This 1797 silver dollar is a symbol of the year in which the experiment of a democratic nation proved to be more than just that.
