USS Constitution Brass Medallion
The USS Constitution Museum is pleased to offer this commemorative brass coin. It celebrates those who have served aboard her both in battle and in peace. This brass coin was cast from a previous copper medallion.
On the obverse of the coin is an image of USS Constitution under full sail with the words USS CONSTITUTION-Old Ironsides. The image is taken from an oil painting by Marshall Johnson, part of the museum's collection. On the reverse side is a design inspired by the sea bag of Gunner John Lord who served on board USS Constitution between 1824 and 1828; the sea bag is also part of the USS Constitution Museum's collection.
Each medallion measures 1.52 inches and weigh approximately 20 grams. Each coin is sealed in an acrylic holder.
