Coins and stamps[edit]

  • Robert E. Lee was portrayed by the US Mint on the 1925 Commemorative silver US half dollar, along with the words "Stone Mountain", the coin was a fundraiser by for the Stone Mountain monument to honor the Confederate Generals. The authorized issue was 5 million coins, to be sold at $1 each, but that proved overly optimistic and only 1.3 million coins released, many of which ended up in circulation after being spent for face value.[3]
  • Robert E. Lee has been commemorated on at least 5 US postage stamps. One 1936–37 stamp featured General Lee with Lee's home Stratford Hall.[4][5]
