(1789) George Washington Indian Peace Medal, Largest Size, 76 mm., First Reverse Restrike, Struck at the United States Mint in Bronze, Choice About Uncirculated.

Largest Size 76 mm. First Reverse Restrike. Struck beginning in 1903 from a Die that closely copied the original dies used pre-1847. This official Restrike copy being so good that many people were fooled into thinking that the 1789 George Washington Indian Peace Medals were struck from Original dies. These were made at the United States Mint to give collectors a chance to complete their sets of Indian Peace Medals. In fact, there were no Original Washington Peace Medals ever produced of this type. The first Originals were “Oval” in shape and each was Hand-engraved. The second Originals were the so-called “Seasons Medals” that were struck in England, but did not arrive in America until after Washington’s presidential term ended. Thus, the Mint was kind enough to accommodate collectors in later years and add some profits to their coffers. This is a very attractive example, with nice eye appeal and only one or two light marks on the obverse. Scarce, choice, holed at the top and looped for suspension, with its original loop intact.
