Bryan’s support of a duel monetary system based on silver and gold in a 16 to 1 ratio was the major issue of the 1896 election. This issue also continued into later elections, but not to the same extent as in 1896. There are a wide variety of buttons based on the silver issue. Some will simply say silver or have a reference to silver. Some will advocate Free Coinage. Some will use the 16 to 1 ratio. Some will come up with their own unique way to frame the issue! Some of these buttons can be very common, while other are quite rare. Generally, the more intricate and clever a design is, the more valuable it will be to collectors.
