Lewis and Clark set out on an expedition with the Corps of Discovery in May of 1804. The goal of the mission was to map the entirety of the Louisiana Territory recently purchased by US President Thomas Jefferson. Lewis and Clark’s Journey took two years and concluded in September 1806.
During their journey through the West, Lewis and Clark set out to accurately map the whole landscape of the new territories acquired by the United States. It was also an important part of their mission to discover viable routes from the US East Coast through the new territory to the Pacific coast of the continent. This two-round palladium set from Johnson Matthey was issued in 2004 to Mark the 200th anniversary of Lewis and Clark’s expedition.
On the obverse side of each round in this set, you will find the image of Lewis and Clark standing in the wild and looking out over the landscape. The design on this side is based on a painting from Frank Davenport. There is an inscription on the top of the round design field that reads “Stillwater Palladium.”
The reverse face of these 1/2 oz Johnson Matthey Lewis and Clark rounds includes the image of an American Bison. This design is the left profile bust of a buffalo created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser. It originally appeared on the reverse of the Buffalo Nickel circulation coin in the United States from 1913 until 1938.
