1792 BIRCH ONE CENT TRIBUTE – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
This design has been traditionally ascribed to a British artist named William Russell Birch. Patterns with these designs were struck towards the end of 1792. By the time the cent entered formal production, however, its weight and size had been reduced, and another artist was brought in to design the coin.
