Along with the newly drafted 1787 US Constitution, congress authorized America's first coin, the Fugio Cent. Now one of the rarest US coins has been beautifully replicated by master engravers to re-celebrate America's most important document, the US Constitution. Resized from its original penny dimensions to that of a standard US Nickel, the obverse is emblazoned with a sundial, Fugio (I Fly) and "Mind Your Business." Some theorize Franklin's meaning to the latter phrase to be "Time flies, so mind your business." Others see it as a motto reminding us to keep government out of our business, like the message to King George of "Don't Tread on Me." The reverse inscription shows "We Are One" in a 13-link chain representing the original states strengthened by their new republic.
