US Brasher Doubloon 1787
The gold doubloons of Ephraim Brasher, EB, a neighbor of George Washington, are certainly interesting and famous pieces of Americana. The first legal tender US coins were issued in America in 1792, a full 16 years after the Declaration of Independence. Until then, mostly Spanish coins supported commerce. Goldsmith Brasher issued his coins during the 16 years between 1776 and 1792.
