In celebration of Indiana’s bicentennial anniversary and the recent celebration of our County’s bicentennial, the Washington County Historical Society is proud to announce, the upcoming release of a commemorative 12 coin collection, celebrating the history of Washington County, Indiana.
Each coin in the set will honor people, places, events or institutions specifically commemorating our territorial County’s historic past. These finely crafted coins would be a beautiful addition to any coin collection, a wonderful gift for local history buffs and are a beneficial investment towards safeguarding the preservation of our county’s heritage and ancestry.
Proceeds will benefit the John Hay Center.
The first in the series is the 2.5 inch coin of the county courthouse, available now at the Stevens Museum.
Subsequent coins will be; the Lion Statue, Old Settlers’ Days, John Hay / the Hay House, The Depot, the Salem National Guard and several others to follow.
