In the fall of 1781, General George Washington's forces, supported by the French army and navy, besieged General Lord Charles Cornwallis' veteran British army – dug in at Yorktown, Virginia. The Battle of Yorktown proved to be the last major land battle of the American Revolutionary War.

Replacing Cornwallis' captured army was a questionable proposition for the British. With support for the war eroded, peace negotiations began the following year. The Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783 and formally brought an end to the Revolutionary War and established the United States as a free and independent country.

In 1789 George Washington became the first President of the United States.

This impressive first release features a coloured illustration of the battle leader, General George Washington. He stands against a background showing his American troops capturing a British gun during the Battle of Yorktown.

This coin cleverly combines colour and engraving, with an antique-finish, and comes presented in an antique-looking timber box. This opens to reveal the coin nestled in its black velvet interior with the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The themed outer box features a black line art illustration of the battle imposed over an antiqued paper texture.
