    The beautiful silver plated coin-shaped token is dedicated to the famous story of La Amistad. The slave revolt on a board of the vessel made she well-known in 1893. Slaves from Sierra Leone took control of the schooner and ordered the Spanish crew to sail back to Africa, but they secretly sailed the ship to the shores of the USA instead. When La Amistad was captured by Americans, slaves were decided by the American Supreme Court to be free people and not to be returned to Spanish owner of La Amistad as property. The story became internationally renowned as a symbol of abolishing slavery in USA. The image of the La Amistad schooner is depicted on the both sides of the round. The name of the ship and the surname of the leader of the slaves’ revolt are minted above the image of the ship. The names of then-President of the USA John Quincy Adams and the lawyer Roger Baldwin are minted below the vessel along with the year of the Amistad case.
