    Charles Sherwood Stratton was born in 1838. He stopped growing when he was six months old. He then began to grow again, though slowly, in 1847. By his 18th birthday, Stratton had reached a height of 2 feet 8.5 inches.

    He began touring with PT Barnum as General Tom Thumb at the age of five, amassing fame and fortune that later allowed him a lavish lifestyle and business partnership with Barnum.

    Tom Thumb died in 1883 of a stroke at age 45, six months after narrowly escaping a disastrous hotel fire at the Newhall House in Milwaukee that killed 71 people. He had reached a maximum height of 3.35 feet and weighed 71 pounds.

    • Contains 1 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: Famous image of General Tom Thumb, with “GENERAL TOM THUMB” above.
    • Reverse: “FAMOUS CIRCUS SIDESHOW ACTS” on a circus tent background with the hallmark across the lower circumference.
