25 - Twenty-Five Goldbacks
Fortitudine, or Fortitude, makes her second appearance in a Goldback series in New Hampshire’s 25 Goldback Denomination design. She is clothed in a military coat of a minute-man, and is wearing a dress that includes the vertical red and white stripes that were used by the early rebel colonists, which were ultimately included horizontally in the United States flag. She is leaning a musket over one shoulder and has a powder horn in the opposite hand, both understood as being captured from Fort William and Mary as illustrated in the 10 Goldback Design. Next to her stands a miniature depiction of New Hampshire’s famous granite monument featuring the state’s motto: “Live Free or Die”, and the caption beneath her reads “Take Courage”.
At her feet are a mother and baby porcupines, representing the emotion of being loving and calm, but having the quills to stand your ground and protect your own when necessary. Behind Fortitudine is a maple tree in early spring with a tap and bucket, representing the fortitude of the tree through the winter, whose pulsing sap, as the temperatures warm, brings life back to the tree itself and energy and joy to those who count on it. Also in the background the viewer can see a depiction of Mount Washington and the historic Mount Washington Hotel. These features nod heavily to the underlying reasons that “The Granite State” is such a fitting title for the state of New Hampshire and captures those elements.

‘’I would highly recommend making online purchases from Stout Gold & Silver. I was a little hesitant at first because it was going to be my first time purchasing from them so I gave them a call and they took extra time to walk me through the process. Turns out there was not much to it, I placed the order for check payment, mailed off my check and they sent me an update when my order was being shipped out. All the pieces of silver came exactly as described and were undamaged, they did a very good job packaging the pieces. All and all, I am very satisfied and look forward to placing my next order with them. I hope this is helpful comment for anyone interested in doing business with them.’’
‘’ Started buying silver coins a few years ago, great service, honest prices. I always deal with a guy named Brett, he is pretty funny, super helpful, and very nice. 10/10 would buy again from them. ’’
‘’Best Gold and Silver dealer bar none! And the safe storage is both affordable and very secure. This business also has the advantage of being owned run by Tom Stout, who i would trust with just about anything. Admittedly I'm friends with Tom as well as a customer but he really is a man of his word, if he says it, that's the way it's going to happen.’’
‘’Ordered a 1986 Proor Libertad and was very pleased with my purchase! Great price and super fast shipping with no hassle. It even came with the original box and I thought it was just the coin. I work at a coin shop and it’s great to do business with other great coin shops. I highly recommend this shop! Thanks for the amazing coin!’’
‘’Stout is very dependable and willing to make sure you get what you want! Thanks for the great service!’’
