U.S. Capitol Bicentennial Plate (Circa 1993)

$ 69.00

Concentric rings of delicate gold leaf and dense dark blue surround a beautifully rendered outline of the U.S. Capitol Building on a handsome field of ivory. Commissioned for the iconic structure’s 200th anniversary, the back is inscribed with these immortal words:

“Our Nation’s Capitol is the preeminent symbol of our birthright of freedom. No other edifice so conveys the drama and conviction of the American Republic; no other spot in all the land so exemplifies its history. Here, art and architecture recall the issues and leaders that have shaped our Nation’s destiny.”         

Dimensions: 7.5” (diameter)
