Here's an eBay purchase I received this week for my set of silver dollar sized medals, known in the hobby as a "Wilson Dollar."

According to NGC, "The Wilson dollar was struck to commemorate the opening of the Manila Mint on July 6, 1920, which was the first and only US mint established outside the continental United States. The obverse is a well-executed bust of then-president Woodrow Wilson. The reverse features "Juno Moneta", the goddess of money and minting, kneeling and supervising a young boy who is pouring coin planchets (or blanks) into a coining press."

When the U.S. Mint established its branch in the Philippines in 1920, this silver dollar sized medal was one of the first numismatic pieces struck at the new facility. Although 2200 silver medals were struck, many of them were dumped into Manila Bay when the Japanese invaded the Philippines near the beginning of WWII. Considering the condition of this particular medal, it looks like it was one of the pieces dredged from the bay after the war.

Lovely Jersey token, yarm, and hard to come by in higher grades like yours...well, mine too.

Here's its big brother, so to speak, from my "sub-collection" of Channel Islands tokens from the Regency Period.

Dalton 2, Davis 2, KM Tn4


I never pay too much for my tokens...but every now and then I may buy one a little too soon.

@captainrich: I always enjoy having a look at a "Wilson Dollar." The US-PI series is an ongoing interest of mine. Thanks for sharing!

If you're interested in reading more about the "Wilson Dollars." check out my previous post about them:

My most recent pickups: the Martin Van Buren and William Henry Harrison Presidential silver medals.






Fun fact: Van Buren is the only US President whose first language was not English.

Also, the Harrison medal is a completely different style than the others in the series. I assume this is because he was only in office for one month and didn't issue any peace medals?

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

Someone was letting some coronation medals go on the cheap, so I tossed out a few bids on them without doing any homework, and quite pleased really for not much money. If anyone has any information about these, let me know. I usually collect Victoriana so these are a bit newer for me.

1902 Coronation Medal - Edward VII/Alexandra
Gilt over a textured surface, bronze perhaps? Enamelled reverse. Attachment loop.
High relief. 26.8g, 38mm x 2.7mm




1902 Coronation Medal - Edward VII/Alexandra
White metal or pewter? Pierced (holed)
Reverse looks a bit dirty but I don't dare attempt to fix it.
17.0g, 37.8mm x 2.7mm




1902 Coronation Medal - Edward VII/Alexandra
Bronze (?) toned with a bit of iridescence developing on the upper reverse when viewed in hand. Seems quite a bit too heavy to be copper.
Attachment loop. Minor rim ding @ 3:00
18.7g, 33.2mm x 2.5mm
