    Hello everyone . I thought this might pretty cool . Display a coin that represents someone famous in History BESIDES being solely a President, for this Fine Friday !
    ALSO, if you could, name something they achieved . I'll go first.
    Ben Franklin : Invented the Lightening rod .

    I can think of two (but one's not a U.S. coin):

    1. Columbus. What he did: Discovered the new world.

    2. The Good Samaritan. What he did: Help someone without taking credit.

    Do you also have the 2020-W Jefferson proof? They never minted a 2020-W BU that year. Just the proof and RP. :) (Some useless trivia from me.)
