Celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party with Stacks Bowers Galleries

On December 16, 1773, the Sons of Liberty in Boston, Massachusetts disguised themselves as Native Americans, boarded British merchant ships, and dumped thousands of pounds of tea into Boston Harbor in protest of the Tea Act of May 10, 1773. Public anger in response to this act was one of many catalysts for the American Revolution. This year, 2023, marks the 250th anniversary of this event. The City of Boston in conjunction with the Boston Tea Party 250th Anniversary Committee has planned a series of events for tourists during the week leading up the anniversary on December 16, 2023. Come to Boston for the celebration of anniversary of the historical event that helped accelerated and intensify colonial support for the American Revolution!

One side of the medal portrays the Boston Tea Party while the other features a famous image from the Gadsden flag with a coiled timber rattlesnake sitting upon a patch of green grass, with thirteen rattles for the thirteen original colonies, and the words” DONT TREAD ON ME.” Visit our gallery at 84 State Street to acquire one of these silver rounds celebrating this historic anniversary (limited quantity available).
