Why purchase this 1925 United States Norse American Thin Silver Medal?
The U.S. Mint issued a series of commemorative medals in 1925 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the arrival of fifty-two Norwegian immigrants to the United States in 1825 aboard the "Restauration." The medals are octagonal in shape, featuring the artistry of sculptor James Earle Fraser, designer of the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. The medals were minted in gold and bronze, with two silver types identified as thick and thin.
Gorgeous Viking Themed Imagery
Obverse: A Norwegian Viking chieftain is depicted on the obverse standing on the shore with a longship in the background. The chief is armed with a shield, sword and svard (dagger), and dressed in traditional Viking warrior styled armor. Inscribed "NORSE AMERICAN CENTENNIAL," with the anniversary dates "1825" and "1925."
Reverse: The reverse features a Viking longship with a dragon head prow at full sail upon a stylized sea. Inscribed "AUTHORIZED BY CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" above, with "A.D. 1000" below, citing the date of Viking explorer Leif Erikson's arrival to North America. The design credit of "OPUS FRASER" appears behind the vessel, which is Latin for "Fraser's work."
