Presidential Silver Medal Honoring Zachary Taylor Available On May 2 2022
2022, May 2

US Mint - The Zachary Taylor Presidential Silver Medal will be available for purchase directly from the United States Mint (Mint) starting on May 2 at noon EDT. Taylor was the nation's 12th U.S. President, serving from March 4, 1849, until July 9, 1850.



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 99.9 percent fine silver, each measuring 1.598 inches in diameter.

The obverse (heads) of the Zachary Taylor Presidential Silver Medal is by sculptor Henry Kirke Brown, and the reverse (tails) is by sculptor John Reich, United States Mint Assistant Engraver in the early nineteenth century.

The obverse features Taylor's portrait with the inscriptions "ZACHARY TAYLOR," "PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES," and "1849" along the border of the medal.

The reverse features the inscription "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP," symbolized by two hands clasped in token of amity. On the cuff of the left wrist are three stripes and buttons; the other wrist is bare. Above the hands, the pipe of peace and the tomahawk are crossed over each other.

If my I had finished my Dansco albums by now I would have liked to have done this series on enrollment. Priorities, I guess.

I'm thinking of breaking these out of their OGP and putting them into a Dansco album. (do they make albums for these medals?)


Dearborn, I use Lighthouse (Leuchtturm) ENCAP 40/41 plastic pages, along with Lighthouse (Leuchtturm) CAP 41mm capsules.

Here is the page with the first 12 Presidential Silver Medals, including the latest Zachary Taylor issue.
