Americas federal capital city, the District of Columbia is the formal name for the city most know as Washington D.C. The Residence Act of 1790 approved the creation of a capital district located on the Potomac Rivers banks on the East Cast of the United States. Named in honor of the nations first president, the city was founded in 1791 and actually designed by Washington himself.
As the 2nd coin in the ATB Series 2017 release schedule, the 2017 5 oz ATB Frederick Douglass National Historic Site Silver Coin honors the site in Washington D.C. administered by the National Park Service that preserves the home and estate of Frederick Douglass, an abolitionist and prominent African American in 19th century America.
