Why add this 1925 Thick Silver Norse American Medal your collection of precious metals?
To honor the 100th Anniversary of the arrival of forty-five Norwegian immigrants aboard the "Restauration," the U.S. Congress authorized the production of a series of commemorative medals in 1925. The non-denominational medals were struck by the U.S. Mint in four varieties: gold, bronze, thick silver and thin silver. Imagery of the medal series, inspired by Norse heritage, was crafted by the designer of the 1913 Buffalo Nickel, acclaimed sculptor James Earle Fraser.
Imagery Influenced by Norse History
Obverse: The obverse features a Norwegian Viking chieftain stepping ashore, dressed in full armor with a horned helmet, shield, sword and svard (dagger). "NORSE AMERICAN CENTENNIAL" is inscribed above, with the anniversary dates "1825" and "1925" flanking the warrior.
Reverse: A meticulously detailed rendition of a Viking longship at sea is illustrated on the reverse, with the year of Viking explorer Leif Erikson's North American landing, "A.D. 1000," memorialized below. Additional inscriptions include "AUTHORIZED BY CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "OPUS FRASER," Latin for "Fraser's work."
