    Brasher Doubloon




    The Brasher Doubloon is part of the “Regulated” series of gold coins that were counter-stamped by American merchants as a guarantee of their value shortly after the end of the American Revolution. The Brasher Doubloon is the first circulating gold coin to be struck in the United States and included elements in its design that would later be incorporated in official American coinage. Its creator, Ephraim Brasher, was a neighbor of George Washington while he lived in Philadelphia. This coin has been generously loaned to the ANA by Adam Crum of Monaco Rare Coins.
