Why buy this 1925 Thick Silver United States Norse American Medal?
The United States Mint marked the 100th anniversary of the Restauration's voyage from Slavanger, Norway to New York. The ship carried 45 Norse immigrants, who would be followed by countless more. This medal is the perfect addition to the collection of any American with Norse heritage, as well as anyone else who is interested in the history of American immigration.
Powerful Viking Warrior Design by James Earle Fraser
Both faces of this medal bear designs by James Earle Fraser, who also designed the Buffalo Nickel. Obverse: On the obverse, a Viking warrior stands on the shore with his longship behind him. He wields a sword and a shield between inscriptions of the anniversary dates, "1825" and "1925." Above is the inscription "NORSE AMERICAN CENTENNIAL."
Reverse: On the reverse, Vikings row one of their longships, which is at full sail. An inscription notes the occasion for which the medal was struck, "AUTHORIZED BY CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." Below is an inscription of the date, "AD 1000," a reference to Viking exploration of North America around that time.
Beautifully Maintained MS65
