The Gaspee Affair is named for an infamous British customs ship called theHMS Gaspee,which prowled the eastern seaboard in the wake of the Seven Years’ War and had become known for detaining ships and confiscating their cargoes. One night, a vessel they had targeted lured the schooner into grounding itself near the village of Warwick; the crew quickly found themselves attacked and captured and their vessel put to the torch. The 250th anniversary of this dramatic early protest against taxation is celebrated by the 2022 American Revolution The Gaspee Affair 1 oz Silver Proof Coin.

Obverse

The coin’s obverse features an engraving of the people of the Mesa Grande Sovereign Nation gathered under the boughs of an oak tree with the rays of the sun radiating from beyond. A banner carrying the band’s name is shown clasped in the talons of the bald eagle in the foreground, and the image is accompanied by the inscriptions “AMERICA” and “$1.”

Reverse

The coin’s reverse features a high-relief engraving of the immolation of theHMS Gaspee.This is accompanied by the inscriptions “The Gaspee Affair” and “1772 – 2022.”

History

For at least a decade prior to the American Revolution, the tax demands of Britain and her incessant wars during the 18th century led to protests against the Crown in the Thirteen Colonies of America from at least a decade before the beginning of the War of Independence. When the HMS Gaspeemet its fate in 1772, it may have been harrying an anti-tax protest group called the Sons of Liberty. If so, its targets proved to be more popular than anticipated, as the group that burned the ship would entirely escape a royal commission sent to apprehend them.
