I was designed by CCCXL.MMMCXXV x CXXVIII.
He lived thru VIII heads.
I outlived my designer by roughly XL years
If I had all that was minted today at face, I would roughly have $69,106.00 worth of Peso's.
I was not the first, but I was the last.
When I blush you pay more.
I wear my "Stella" jewelry with pride.
The old home place was sold for $3.77 for one of these.

What am I?

Sorry had a typo on the Roman numerals.

That's a good one. You lost me when I couldn't figure out what the answer to your first Roman Numeral equation was for. All those years in Catholic School finally paying off. Lost me for now. I'll be thinking on this. Thanks.🐍

1909 S RED Indian cent is correct.
The measurements = a acre. Not a square acre but a Long Acre.
The mint was sold to the city for one dollar, thus the price roughly of a silver dollar.
The rest is easy.

My home soil was purchased but with inflation today would equal $ 44,164.94 roughly.

It took "Stella" years for congress to approve my home.

With inflation my home today would cost $ 877,410.20 to build.

On Sivan 11,5621 things changed at home.

Lucky for me my dies was shipped Sivan 20,5609.

The old home place was to be torn down. Thank heavens when the XXXII took us off the standard that year, some good ole boys bought me. I was hauled away, but still intact.

Good old E.C. G. Sr. donated the soil for my new resting place. EC started his business in MCMXII.

As for me I am few.

It took awhile but the man who found me first was 6 hours 41 minutes drive time away, from his home to my home.

He passed in a territory but now resting close to his home.

Others was made, but not like me.

If you melt me down I am worth roughly MMMMMDXCIII.CDLXII times more since my last appearance.

My back side was designed by the son of a ship's captain.

What am I.

Very cool. These last two were too tough for me but fun. Maybe I'll be better on the next subject. Thanks.

I am a mixed up mess, that was not suppose to be.
Add my face to my metal plus my beginning equals when I was made.
Three famous words signaled the start.
Once started what was common became precious.
That's why we changed.
Before it was finished the bad guys lost two.
What you see was 3 and rest in 10.
What you feel was 16 and rest in 21.
What am I?
