This Texas State Seal Coin honors the heritage and wonderful legacy of the State of Texas and salutes her people’s freedom-loving, hardworking nature.
Having to fight off a larger Mexican Army to secure their independence, the people of the great State of Texas, through true grit and moxie, have built a shining beacon of freedom for all the nation to admire.
