US Mint to Issue 1st 2019 Presidential Silver Medal January 25

Thomas Jefferson Presidential Medal

The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the Thomas Jefferson Presidential Silver Medal (product code S803) on January 25 at noon EST. The medal is the first of four .999 fine silver presidential medals slated for release this year.

The obverse of this medal depicts a side view of Jefferson’s head and shoulders. Inscriptions are “TH. JEFFERSON,” “PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,” and “A.D. 1801.”

The reverse depicts a symbolic handshake of friendship between the American government and the Indian nations. Above the hands are a crossed pipe and tomahawk, with the inscription “PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP” intertwined through the design. The design is by John Reich.

The medal arrives packaged in a clamshell case with a standardized Presidential Silver Medal Certificate of Authenticity.

The Presidential Silver Medals have the same designs as their bronze counterparts and are being issued at a rate of four per year. They have a matte finish similar to an uncirculated coin (note: The term “uncirculated” is exclusive to coins.) The medals may be produced across multiple production facilities and will not have a mint mark.

The Mint accepts orders at www.catalog.usmint.gov and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT. Information about shipping options is available at www.catalog.usmint.gov/customerservice/shipping.html.

About the United States Mint

usmintThe United States Mint was created by an Act of Congress in 1792 and became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873. The United States Mint is the Nation’s sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage and is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce.

The U.S. Mint also produces numismatic products, including proof, uncirculated, and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; and silver and gold bullion coins. The United States Mint’s numismatic programs are self-sustaining and operate at no cost to taxpayers.

Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, the primary mission of the Mint is to produce an adequate volume of circulating coinage for the nation. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury. Other responsibilities include: Maintaining physical custody and protection of the Nation's $100 billion of U.S. gold and silver assets; Manufacturing and selling platinum, gold, and silver bullion coins; and Overseeing production facilities in Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point, as well as the U.S. Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
