Confederatio Coppers

The Confederatio coppers are experimental or pattern pieces. This explains why the die with the CONFEDERATIO legend was combined with other designs, such as the bust of George Washington, Libertas et Justitia of 1785, Immunis Columbia of 1786, the New York “Excelsiors,” Inimica Tyrannis Americana, and others. In all, 13 dies were struck in 14 combinations. Some of the dies may have been made by George Wyon of Birmingham, England.

There are two types of the Confederatio reverse. In one instance the stars are contained in a small circle; in the other, larger stars are in a larger circle.
