The Twenty Cent Piece

Most people are unaware of the fact that the U.S. Mint once produced a 20 cent piece. This coin was authorized by the Act of March 3, 1875, and lasted until 1878. This coin was widely confused as a quarter by the public. The coin weighed five grams, the weight of a modern nickel, and was 90 percent silver. Also, this coin was 22 millimeters in diameter while a quarter was 24.3 mm.
