United States Mint Announces Designs for World War I Centennial Silver Medals

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint today revealed the obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) designs for five silver medals that will be issued in conjunction with the 2018 World War I Centennial Silver Dollar. Each medal, composed of 90 percent silver, pays homage to branches of the U.S. Armed Forces that were active in World War I. Design descriptions and the respective minting facilities are below.

World War I Centennial Army Medal – West Point Mint
The Army medal design depicts a soldier cutting through German barbed wire, while a second soldier aims a rifle amid a shattered landscape of broken trees and cratered earth. A shell explodes in the distance. The medal’s reverse design features the United States Army emblem, which was also in use during World War I, with the inscriptions “OVER THERE!,” “CENTENNIAL OF WORLD WAR I,” “2018,” and “UNITED STATES ARMY.”

The obverse was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Designer Emily Damstra and sculpted by now retired United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart, who also designed and sculpted the reverse.

World War I Centennial Marine Corps Medal – San Francisco Mint
The Marine Corps medal’s obverse design depicts the aftermath of the Battle of Belleau Wood. One Marine stands guard as the other kneels to pay respect to the fallen. The inscription quotes a report to the American Expeditionary Force: “WOODS NOW U.S. MARINE CORPS ENTIRELY.” The medal’s reverse design features the World War I-era version of the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor emblem with the inscriptions “CENTENNIAL OF WORLD WAR I,” “2018,” “OVER THERE!,” and “BATTLE OF BELLEAU WOOD.”

The obverse was designed by AIP Designer Chris Costello and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso. The reverse was designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna.

World War I Centennial Navy Medal – Philadelphia Mint
The obverse design of the Navy medal depicts a U.S. Navy destroyer on escort duty after deploying a depth charge in defense of a convoy. Above the destroyer, kite balloons provide Navy personnel a platform to spot submarines and other dangers. The inscription “OVER THERE!” appears at the bottom of the design. The medal’s reverse design features an Officer’s Cap Device* used in World War I. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES NAVY,” “2018,” and “CENTENNIAL OF WORLD WAR I.” (*Note: An official, uniform seal of the United States Navy had not been adopted at the time of World War I.)

The obverse was designed by Chris Costello and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, while the reverse was designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Renata Gordon.

World War I Centennial Air Service Medal – Denver Mint
The obverse of the Air Service medal design depicts the iconic SPAD XIII, a World War I fighter flown by many Americans and valued for its speed, strength, and firepower, viewed from the top and side. The inscription “SPAD XIII” identifies the aircraft. The medal’s reverse design features the Military Aviator Insignia with the inscriptions “CENTENNIAL OF WORLD WAR I,” “2018,” “OVER THERE!,” “AIR SERVICE,” and “AMERICAN EXPEDITIONARY FORCES.”

This obverse was designed by AIP Designer Ronald D. Sanders and sculpted by Joseph Menna, who also designed and sculpted the reverse.

World War I Centennial Coast Guard Medal – Philadelphia Mint
The obverse of the Coast Guard medal depicts a lifeboat from the Coast Guard Cutter USCGC Seneca heading out in heavy seas toward the torpedoed steamship Wellington. The reverse design features the World War I-era Coast Guard emblem, with the inscriptions “CENTENNIAL OF WORLD WAR I,” “2018,” and “OVER THERE!” Both the obverse and reverse of the Coast Guard medal were designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill.

Each silver medal will be paired with a World War I Centennial Silver Dollar and offered as a special set. These medals will not be available individually. Additional information about these sets will be available prior to their release in 2018.

United States Mint Opens Sales for Bronze Medal Honoring Secretary of the Treasury Jacob J. Lew

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) has opened sales for the bronze medal honoring Secretary of the Treasury Jacob J. Lew.

Struck at the United States Mint at Philadelphia, the three-inch bronze medal (Product Code 17MA) is priced at $39.95. The obverse, designed and engraved by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart, features a portrait of Jacob J. Lew with an American flag in the background and the inscriptions “JACOB J. LEW” and “76TH SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.”

The reverse design, also by Everhart, and engraved by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna, features a depiction of the Statue of Liberty and the Main Building on Ellis Island alongside a quote from Emma Lazarus. The inscriptions read “I LIFT MY LAMP BESIDE THE GOLDEN DOOR” and “EMMA LAZARUS.”

The Treasury Department has a longstanding tradition of striking an official medal for each Secretary of the Treasury. The Mint produces the medal under the general authority of 31 U.S.C. § 5111 (a) (2), which states that the Secretary may prepare and strike “national and other medals” if it does not interfere with regular minting operations. Since the 1890s, the Mint has prepared, struck, and distributed medals for 33 of the 35 Senate-confirmed Secretaries.

Orders are being accepted at http://catalog.usmint.gov and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468), while hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT. To learn more about available shipping options, visit https://www.catalog.usmint.gov/customer-service/shipping.html.

2016 France 5 oz. Silver Statue of Liberty 130th Anniversary Commemorative Medal NGC MS70

Online for the first time at MCM, this beautiful commemorative is bursting with historic symbolism, tradition, and heart as it revives a past medal that was originally struck 120 years ago in 1896.

Nearly an exact restrike of the 1896 medal that was created to honor the 10th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty, this newly released Silver Statue of Liberty Medal has resurfaced to celebrate 120 more years of both the Statue of Liberty and the Franco-American Union. Minted by the Monnaie de Paris, each medal was struck using .950 fine silver and was designated to be in MS69 or MS70 condition by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. Additionally, each graded medal is accompanied by an official Certificate of Authenticity.

An outstanding gift from the people of France, the Statue of Liberty materialized the alliance between France and the U.S. during the American Revolution. Because of this significant historical gift, it was only appropriate that both the original Liberty Medal and this stunning commemorative piece were struck by the talented engravers at the Paris Mint. Established in the year 864, the Mint specializes in creating top-quality releases that many times include important, historical elements.

In 1896, numismatics honored the Franco-American Union by showcasing the Statue of Liberty. Continue this historical celebration by adding the newly-minted 5 oz. Statue of Liberty Medal Silver Proof to your collection today.
