Thomas Jefferson, The Jack of Diamonds
3rd President of the United States, 1801—1809

Thomas Jefferson was not a trendy man, he preferred comfort to fashion. A tall man with large hands and feet, he had a tendency to slouch. He was an architect, engineer, inventor, politician, and a connoisseur of fine wines. He designed his own home in Monticello, which appears on the flip side of his portrait of the nickel. Jefferson authorized legislation establishing religious freedom.
