Why Add This GEM BU 1 oz. George Washington Silver Matte Presidential Medal to Your Collection?
The U.S. Mint strikes a wide variety of coins each year both for collectors and for circulation. However, they also produce medals from time to time. The first designs of the Presidential Silver Medal series were released in 2018. The very first design of the series features George Washington. This George Washington medal weighs 1 troy oz. and is made of .999 fine silver. It has a Brilliant Uncirculated matte finish.
Intricate Presidential Design
The obverse of this medal features a design by Pierre Simon Duvivier. The portrait of George Washington at the center of the design displays a very impressive level of detail. The inscriptions on this side read "GEORGE WASHINGTON PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES" and "1789." The date inscribed here is the year that Washington's first term as President began.
The central portion of the design on the reverse shows 2 hands locked in a handshake. Just above them, a tomahawk and a peace pipe can be seen. This side of the medal is inscribed with "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP."
GEM BU Condition
This medal has not been certified by a third-party service. Just like when it left the Mint, it's in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

There are three different places where a discussion of presidents and U.S. coinage could start: with George Washington and Lady Liberty, with Thomas Jefferson and William McKinley, or with Abraham Lincoln. As we will see, a lot depends on what “circulating” means and what a “commemorative” is, and deciding what actually counts!
