Honor Our First President with This George Washington Presidential Silver Medal

The U.S. Mint has done it again! Fresh off the success of its Presidential Bronze Medal Series, it has introduced the Presidential Silver Medal Series. While it’s no surprise that the first release in the series features President George Washington, what IS a surprise is that the Mint used the same one-ounce planchets of 99.9% fine silver that are used for the American Silver Eagles! At 40.6 mm in diameter, these big silver medals will look great in any collection!

Now you can get this first release in this exciting new series – the George Washington Presidential One-Ounce Silver Medal. George Washington was not only our nation’s first president; he was also the commander of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. As president of the Constitutional Convention, he was one of the signers of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. It’s no wonder he is hailed as “The Father of the Country.”

Besides featuring the bust of George Washington on its obverse, the medal’s reverse features an updated version of Engraver John Reich’s design for the Jefferson Peace Medal. The Peace Medal was given to Native Americans during the Lewis & Clark Expedition from 1804-1806. The Mint’s Assistant Engraver from 1807-1817, Reich had earlier designed the Thomas Jefferson Presidential Inaugural Medal in 1801. The design shows two hands clasped together – one with a military cuff the other with a Native American wristband. Above is a tomahawk and peace pipe, and above, between and below the images is the inscription "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP.”

Authorized by Congress, the commemorative Presidential Medals are meant to celebrate and honor the men who were instrumental in forming the foundation of the United States of America. Each medal is designed and crafted to be rich in symbolic history representing the remembrance and preservation of our American past and the never-ending goal for a brighter future. Beginning in 2019, the Mint will release four silver Presidential Medals each year until each president has been represented.

Your George Washington Presidential One-Ounce Silver Medal has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded medal will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! In addition, your medal will be certified as a First Day of Issue (FDI) piece by NGC – independent authentication that it was released by the mint during the premier day of the series’ issue. This medal is from a small group that was released at the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) 2018 World’s Fair of Money show held August 14-18 in Philadelphia. These medals were submitted directly to NGC and come encapsulated with exclusive ANA labels.
