Stamp Act Repealed

Boston, March 1766:   Huzzah! King George and Parliament have voted to repeal the Stamp Act and end the tax on paper in the colonies. William Pitt of England is to be honored with a commemorative coin; he was instrumental in convincing the King and his Parliament members that the colonists should not be taxed without proper representation.
