Copper coins of George Washington

George Washington is not depicted on any copper coins issued during his lifetime as the United States Mint did not produce any copper coins featuring portraits of individuals until the early 19th century. However, there are several modern commemorative coins and tokens that feature George Washington and are made of copper or copper-nickel alloys. These pieces are primarily issued for collectors and enthusiasts and are not intended for circulation. Here are a few examples:

Washington Before Boston Token: This token features George Washington on horseback, inspired by the famous painting "Washington Before Boston" by John Trumbull. It is often made of copper or copper-nickel and serves as a collectible piece commemorating Washington's leadership during the American Revolutionary War.

Washington Presidential Medal: The United States Mint has issued various presidential medals honoring George Washington, some of which are made of copper or copper-nickel alloys. These medals typically feature a bust of Washington on the obverse and various designs representing his life and achievements on the reverse.

Washington Crossing the Delaware Token: Another popular token featuring George Washington depicts him crossing the Delaware River during the American Revolutionary War. This design is often struck on copper or copper-nickel pieces and serves as a reminder of Washington's military leadership.

Mount Vernon Commemorative Tokens: Mount Vernon, George Washington's estate, has issued various commemorative tokens over the years. Some of these tokens are made of copper or copper-nickel alloys and feature images of Washington, Mount Vernon, or other related motifs.

While these tokens and medals are not official currency, they are valued by collectors for their historical significance and association with George Washington, one of the founding fathers of the United States.
