The gold beaver is quite stunning.
Coins were meant to be spent.

Well done ~ post Verdun!
(Thought I'd revisit mine to add to the recent post.)

1917 Battle of Verdun BRONZE Medal by S.E. Vernier



Here is a medal that was presented in a leather pouch accompanied with a folded certificate to French soldiers. It is a very similar to the medal with a loop and ribbon that was posted on the previous page by erafjel here:
http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...=221#3398408
That one was to be worn on a uniform.

This one was presented in a leather pouch accompanied with a folded certificate to French soldiers.



This is a more scarce silver medal that is the same size as the bronze one that I have collected.

1917 Battle of Verdun SILVER Medal by S.E. Vernier



At 7:12 a.m. on the morning of February 21, 1916, a shot from a German Krupp 38-centimeter long-barreled gun—one of over 1,200 such weapons set to bombard French forces along a 20-kilometer front stretching across the Meuse River—strikes a cathedral in Verdun, France, beginning the Battle of Verdun, which would stretch on for 10 months and become the longest conflict of World War I.

I believe there were about 143,000 casualties on the Germany side and 162,440 on the French in this battle alone.

World War I Era 1917 France Battle Of Verdun "On Ne Passe Pas" Memorial Medal. Loosly translated, "On Ne Passe Pas" means "We're Not Going", or, more likely "They Shall Not Pass", referring to the German Army.
This battle was so bloody men called it the "Meat Grinder".

This medal was sculpted by S.E. Vernier in 1917. With a reverse text of "Verdun 21 Fevrier 1916", (VERDUN February 21, 1916) this medal measures 37mm (1 7/16 inch) in diameter.
My favorite album!

Verdun medal made me think of Joan of Arc when I first saw it and for the longest time I thought Marianne was representing her. Maybe in a way she is?
