Obverse: The face represents one of the most accurate versions of the Great Seal: the rays of light piercing the clouds, a white-headed eagle with outstretched wings holding an olive branch and thirteen arrows in the other, symbolizing peace as well as defense through war. The bird is surmounted by thirteen stars, recalling the thirteen original states.
The eagle's head is turned towards the olive branch on its right to symbolize a preference for peace. The banner E Pluribus Unum (Out of many, one) recalls the union of the original 13 states of the United States.

The history of American Independency began when the American War of Independence broke out in 1775, when disagreements between American colonists and the British government arose. At that time, an American army was formed and lead by George Washington. The siege of Boston was the first phase of the war of independence, where New England surrounded the city of Boston to prohibit movement of the British troops.
After months of siege, George Washington and the American colonists forced the British to withdraw by sea. The Declaration of Independence of the United States was voted by American colonists and issued on July 4, 1776, which outlined the colonists' motivations for seeking independence.
