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.

President Obama Receives Bronze Medals Emblemizing Each Term in Office

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama today received official bronze medals depicting each of his two terms in office. During a brief ceremony in the Oval Office, Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, Deputy Secretary Sarah Bloom Raskin and U.S. Mint Principal Deputy Director Rhett Jeppson presented medals featuring the president’s portrait on the obverse (heads side) and portions of memorable speeches delivered during his presidency on the reverse side.

“It has been a privilege to serve President Obama over these last eight years and to have witnessed his leadership up close,” Secretary Lew said. “His historic presidency has improved the lives of millions of Americans and the medals presented today are just one way that his legacy will be honored.”

Presidential medals represent a custom of honoring each president of the United States with an official medal for each term in office. Presidents who serve more than one term are traditionally honored with two medals, one highlighting each of their terms. Since the 1960s, with the exception of Ronald Reagan, all presidents who served more than one term have received two medals. Each medal measures three inches in diameter and weighs approximately nine ounces.

“The medals presented to President Obama ensure that a long-standing tradition of honoring our presidents remains unbroken,” said Jeppson. “Designed, sculpted and struck by the men and women of the U.S. Mint, the medals institutionalize his legacy in a tangible and historical form alongside those leaders who preceded him–from Washington to present.”

Also participating in the ceremony were Elisa Basnight, Chief of Staff of the Mint; Don Everhart, lead sculptor of the Mint; and Phebe Hemphill, Mint medallic artist. Everhart sculpted the reverse of the first term medal and designed and sculpted both the obverse and reverse of the medal honoring the president’s second term. Hemphill sculpted the obverse of the first term medal.

As with other presidential medals, bronze replicas are available to the public. For more information, please visit www.usmint.gov.
