In 1848, one of the first successful democratic revolutions in Europe was realized by the Swiss Confederation. This revolution, along with all other democratic revolutions, was inspired by and based upon the American Revolution. This 1848 quarter eagle is a remnant of the year that the American experiment of a democratic nation took hold and gained a permanent foothold in Europe.
