The classic series of US commemorative coins is not known for its agricultural themes - there are a number that include a plant branch or full cornucopia as a secondary design element, but I don't consider such elements strong enough to cause a design to rise up to "agricultural theme." So, for me, it came down to one coin...

The 1925 Lexington-Concord Sesquicentennial half dollar. The coin was issued to mark the 150th anniversary of the armed clash between American colonists/citizen soldiers and the professional British Army. The battles in these two Massachusetts locations helped ignite the American Revolution.

The obverse of the coin features the Minute Man statue created by Danial Chester French for the centennial of the battles; the statue was put in place in 1875. It is via this statue that I believe the coin's agricultural theme comes into play. The statue depicts an unnamed "minute man" or "minuteman." Minutemen were very often farmers who joined their local militia to protect their homes and farms. They were farmers first, soldiers second.

To help illustrate this, French included a farmer's plow as part of the statue. The statue has been described as depicting a farmer who is leaving his plow (i.e., farm) behind and picking up his long gun to help fight the British.

The coin doesn't perfectly present an agricultural theme, but its obverse design does capture the often rural and agricultural background of those that took up arms against the British to fight for American independence.

You can read my previous posts about the coin and its original packaging here: 1925 Lexington-Concord Sesquicentennial and here 1925 Lexington-Concord Sesquicentennial Ephemera.

I've presented a full-color image of the statue here: 1925 Lexington-Concord Sesquicentennial - Coins with Hats Thread.
