War of 1812 Bicentennial Medallion
Sailors and history buffs will appreciate this coin honoring the way America’s young navy came of age during the War of 1812, winning a series of stunningly decisive battles against Great Britain on the high seas, the Great Lakes, and the American frontier. USS Constitution sails fearlessly on the coin’s obverse as the iconic U.S. Navy warship of the conflict. Celebrating over two hundred years of keeping the seas free, this coin is minted in the USA from special deep-relief coining dies; struck from solid bronze; and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail. Minted for the Naval Historical Foundation which has helped preserve and commemorate naval history for nearly 90 years, all Americans can take pride in owning, carrying, or displaying this tribute to the Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who sail in harm’s way in America’s defense.
Measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) Round. From Northwest Territorial Mint.
