Silver Medal Honoring President Martin Van Buren On Sale February 1
2021, February 1

US Mint - The United States Mint (Mint) will begin accepting orders for the Martin Van Buren Presidential Silver Medal on February 1 at noon EST. The medal is priced at $65.



The Department of the Treasury has a long-standing tradition of honoring each President of the United States with an official bronze medal struck by the Mint. The Mint is now replicating this series of medals in .999 percent fine silver.

This medal features Van Buren's portrait on its obverse (heads) with the inscriptions "MARTIN VAN BUREN," "PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES," and "A.D.1837." The medal's reverse (tails) features the inscription "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP," symbolized by two hands clasped in a token of amity. On the cuff of the left wrist are three stripes and buttons, while the other wrist is bare. Above the hands, the pipe of peace and tomahawk are crossed over each other.

Moritz Furst, an early nineteenth century medallic artist, designed and sculpted the obverse. John Reich, United States Mint Assistant Engraver in the early nineteenth century, designed and sculpted the reverse.

Each medal is encapsulated and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

I started collecting the series back in 2018, The First and a few to follow were $39,95 each. They are a Beautiful Commemoration to the Presidential series, I just wish I could continue at the Original Asking Price, In Silver Too....... Thank You for the message about the Martin Van Buren Release......

These are still on my list to collect some day. I have the ones in the 2013-2015 Coin & Chronicles sets and I really like them.

The medals are arriving already - hopefully the USPS is finally keeping up and getting quicker now.
