In 1776, the founding fathers switched their focus the structure of state governments and the Constitution in the wake of the Declaration of Independence being ratified. While it was originally not considered important to have a Bill of Rights to safeguard the people's rights, the advocates of the Constitution knew that it was essential to draft a Bill of Rights to get the Constitution ratified by the states. The Bill of Rights was formally incorporated into the Constitution in December 1791, thanks mainly to the efforts of James Madison.
Each round is minted using 1 troy ounce of pure 0.999 silver bullion and makes a wonderful gift due to its value and imagery that reminds every proud American of their rich history.
