Ben "The Bear" Tower

Brad Tower came to us to have these designed and minted to honor his young son, Ben, who died in a house fire along with his two siblings. Ben’s football team will use the coin for their opening coin toss.

Buying Power

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?Small coins were pretty valuable in the times of the Roman empire. Because silver and gold were rare and valuable metals, the coins made from them were valued accordingly. Everyday silver coins the size of a dime were worth a full day’s pay for a laborer (and most workers were laborers). You could support yourself and a small family on that. One small silver coin (a denarius) could buy enough wheat for 25 pounds of bread or 10 pounds of olive oil.
