Victor D. Brenner's (designer of the Lincoln penny) design for the $1 coin.
Interesting what could have been, even though it looks similar to the seated and trade dollars.

The design looks kind of old fashioned entering the turn into the 20th century. Very different than the very simple Lincoln cent design he is famous for.

Here is a medal that Victor D. Brenner designed for the Art Institute of Chicago's Norman Wait Harris Prize. It is a massive 70mm. Seems to be channeling Hermon MacNeil's standing liberty design.

Still feels classical rather than MacNeal's art deco feel. I think VDB was just more rooted in victorian classicism.

That is an interesting piece and the 26 date would means it was most likely designed after the SLQ were put in circulation. The reverse has the Art Institute profile and I think that is an oak branch on the left. What is the right? Any idea of the significance of those two tree branches?

My guess would be laurel a symbol of Victory
maybe Olive branch ( peace )?

Silver certificates between March 1964 and June 24, 1968, were exchangeable at U.S. Assay Office facilities for silver bullion granules. The plastic box containing the granules does not resemble packaging used by the U.S. Mint. -Coin World 2011

This medal was designed in 1909 a few years before MacNiels SLQ and in the book "The Beaux-Arts of America" by Barbara A. Baxter, she states the following.




Here is another picture of the medal in bronze.
