The 2007-W $5 Jamestown Commemorative coin was issued to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the settlement of Jamestown, Virginia. In 1607, three ships carried English settlers to the "New World" where they would establish permanent English settlement in what would become the United States.
The obverse of the gold coin features Captain John Smith with the Native American chief Powhatan. The inscriptions read “Liberty”, “1607”, “2007”, “Founding of Jamestown”, and “In God We Trust”. The obverse was designed by John Mercanti. The reverse features the remains of the Jamestown Memorial Church, which is the only remaining structure in Jamestown. The inscriptions read “United State of America”, the face value “$5”, “E Pluribus Unum”, and “Jamestown Memorial Church”. The reverse was designed by Susan Gamble.
