Description & Analysis

Proof mintage tailed off from even the dismal numbers coined in 1912, with the 1913 issue coming in at 99 pieces. Of those, most remain in Gem grades or nearly so, as collectors have carefully preserved these delicate coins since the time of issue.

Woodrow Wilson assumed the stewardship of America in early 1913, with his hopeful policies and promises. In terms of progress, Henry Ford completed his first assembly line to make cars. With the new assembly line Ford was able to produce cars far more quickly than ever before and for much less money. Soon the price of a Ford was low enough that working people could afford one for the first time in history. America soon took to the roads, and before long the local and federal governments were building roads to handle the ever-growing number of cars. Politicians took another step forward with the passage of two important items, the first income tax was passed and the Federal Reserve was formed. Nothing has been the same ever since.
