In 1858, Commodore Matthew Perry died of rheumatism in New York City at the age of sixty-three. Perry made a name for himself through not only his military record, but also from his diplomatic expeditions to Japan that forced the island nation’s ports open to United States trade. This 1858 silver three cent coin recalls the passing of a key figure in 19th century US history.
