SONS OF LIBERTY, TYPE III – 1 TROY OUNCE – 39MM (ONLY 500 MINTED!)
Prior to the American Revolution, there were many instances and individuals who were passionately involved in the protection of the Thirteen American Colonies. One such organization that was created was the Sons of Liberty, a secret society formed to fight taxation by the British government, playing a major role in the Stamp Act in 1765.
As a formal underground organization, the Sons of Liberty promoted a unified inter-Colonial effort resisting taxes and laws whose motto became “No taxation without representation”. They would often issue anonymous summons to a “Liberty Tree” for public meetings with well-known organizers and leaders such as Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, and the now infamous traitor Benedict Arnold.
