George Washington Bronze Medal

SKU 32037

The United States Mint's Presidential Medals date back to the earliest days of the Republic. Such medals were presented to American Indian chiefs and other important leaders at events like treaty signings, thus were known as peace medals. This bronze (mixed copper and zinc) replica presidential medal features George Washington on obverse and symbols of peace and friendship on reverse.

The peace medal series became the Presidential medal series after President Andrew Johnson left office in 1869. The front of each medal continued to bear a portrait of the incumbent president. On the back, instead of symbols of peace and friendship, were inaugural dates, terms of office, presidential symbols and seals, and excerpts from speeches.
