Twenty Cent Piece

United States Twenty Cent Piece
The United States twenty-cent piece was minted from 1875 to 1878. It was proposed by Nevada Senator John P. Jones, but it failed due to confusion with the quarter, (kind of like the Susan B. problem) because it was too close in size and value. Jones, who initially had this brain fart, pushed for a twenty-cent piece, which he said would eliminate the shortage of small change in the Far West. The bill passed Congress, and mint director Henry Linderman got sucked into the idea and ordered the coins to be struck. Another fascinating coin!
