The United States Mint is reissuing Presidential bronze medals that were taken off sale several years ago.
The U.S. Mint had been offering medals of only the more recent presidents and those of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. Added to the Mint’s product line-up on Friday, Nov. 6, are 1.5-inch and 3-inch bronze medals featuring:
Pricing varies by medal size. The smaller 1.5-inch medals are $6.95 each while the larger 3-inch medals are $39.95 each.
The United States Mint has produced Presidential medals since the earliest days of the Republic. They were presented to American Indian chiefs and other important leaders at events like treaty signings. Struck in 90% copper and 10% zinc by the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, obverses feature a portrait of the president while reverses offer varying designs and inscriptions.
Presidential medals are available from the U.S. Mint’s website, right here, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
To follow are descriptions and photos of 1.5-inch medals featuring Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. The medals photographed are of those that the U.S. Mint sold years earlier.
