Remember the fight against Federal government repression with this sterling silver Alien and Sedition Acts proof sterling silver round. This 40 gram sterling silver round contains 1.22 troy oz of silver.
The obverse shows a man in a jail cell being confronted by two men in the dead of night, reading the list of charges brought against him. The inscription "Alien and Sedition Acts Curtail Liberties" and "Summer 1798" encircle the scene.
The reverse lists major events in US history for the year 1798, including the passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts, and their annulment by Kentucky and Virginia.
The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 criminalized speaking out against the government and eliminated the free press, trampling the Bill of Rights. The fight against this Federal repression gave birth to the States Rights movement.
