Commemorate your visit to the Washington Monument with this die-struck medallion created by master artisans. Great as a gift, to celebrate a trip or to just hold as a timeless reminder of your experience, this National Monument medallion will be a meaningful keepsake that you will enjoy forever.
Standing proudly before the reflecting pool in Washington D.C., the Washington Monument was built to honor the first president of the United States, George Washington. One of the most recognizable structures in the Capitol, the Monument has been witness to some of the most important political events, rallies, and speeches in the country’s history. Reaching up to ascend into the nation’s skyline, the Washington Monument is a true symbol of the American people and its government.
The medallion’s obverse shows a picture of the Monument with the text, “Washington Monument Completed, 1884.” The reverse shows the text of the medallion’s craftsmen, the Medallic Art Company. Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and given a beautiful lacquered finished.
Each coin measures 1 1/2 inch (38.1mm) in diameter.
This is an NWTMINT surplus item.
