Robert Morris, chairman of the Senate Committee for Coinage was commissioned to write legislation to establish the US Mint including coin design details on October 31, 1791. Morris employed engravers to create sample coins according to his requirements. Peter Getz of Pennsylvania, was one of his engravers. Both copper and silver samples Getz's prototype were struck, this was done presumably towards the end of 1791. They were to be passed to government officials prior to the introduction of the Morris legislation on December 21, 1791. Thirty to forty silver samples are believed to have been distributed to Senators. Roughly 125 copper samples were also minted and distributed to other congressmen and politicians.

The concept of his image on coinage was dismissed by Washington as being overly monarchical. After the Congress learned of Washington's disagreement with his image on a coin, an amended bill was passed. The main difference of this bill was the replacement of the text requiring a presidential coin portrait on coins with "a device emblematic of liberty." Which effectively meant that there were no chance that Congress was going to accept Getz's provisional design as the model of U.S. coins.

These silver rounds contain 2 troy ounces of 0.999 pure silver bullion and is minted by Intaglio Mint in Denver, CO.
