In 1823, a man named Joseph Smith claimed that an Angel named Moroni appeared to him and told him where to find golden plates inscribed by God. Smith translated the plates into what is called the Book of Mormon and the foundation of the Mormon religion. This 1823 dime recalls the defining year for Mormonism.
