Why Make This GEM 1903 Morgan Treasury 1 oz. Proof Silver Medal the Next Addition to Your Collection?
Today, the U.S. Mint issues United States Treasury medals to honor those who serve as Secretary of the Treasury. However, the first U.S. Treasury medal was not struck until 1903. The 1 oz. silver proof shown here was authorized by the Smithsonian, and it features the designs used for the very first U.S. Treasury medal. This piece was struck by a private Mint. Mintage of these .999 fine silver medals is limited to 2,500 pieces.
Stunning Depiction of Hamilton
The obverse of this medal shows a portrait of Alexander Hamilton created by George T. Morgan. Many consider this portrait to be one of Morgan's greatest works of art, including retired Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti. The inscriptions on this side include Hamilton's name along with the years of his birth and death.
The design on the reverse shows something that is generally familiar to many of us. The seal shown here was the first version to be used by the United States Treasury.
GEM Proof Condition
This medal has not been certified by a third-party grading service. Just like when it was struck, this specimen is in GEM Proof condition.
