E Pluribus Unum

E Pluribus Unum: 
 We see it on our coins everyday if we take the time to look. But what does it mean. Translated from Latin it means "One of Many". 
That's nothing special. In a way that describes us all. We are all human just ad they are all coins. We are all one of many. So why put it on every coin since the founding of our money system? To prove it is authentic. To say that that piece is one real piece and not a fake. The same can be said of us, we are one of many. But we are each an individual and authentic piece with our own set value whatever that may be. So maybe you are one of the crowd, who cares, at least you know you are real and is that not what really counts.
