Established on March 19, 1936, Homestead National Monument of America recalls an earlier time in American history. Specifically, it commemorates the Homestead Act of 1862 by preserving the original homestead claim of Daniel Freeman, widely believed to be America’s first homesteader as he was responsible for filing the first claim under the Act on the day it went into effect.

Buyer’s will have the choice of purchasing a bag containing 100 circulation quality strikes from either the Mint’s facility in Denver of the Mint’s facility in Philadelphia. Both locations are responsible for striking the circulating coinage of the United States.
