1801 THOMAS JEFFERSON INAUGURAL MEDAL TRIBUTE – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
The 1801 Jefferson Inaugural medal was struck to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and Jefferson’s ascent to the office of the presidency. Jefferson was, of course, the leading author of that document on July 4, 1776, and he passed away 50 years to the day it was signed. They were produced at the instruction of Philadelphia Mint Chief Henry Voigt, a Jefferson supporter, and engraved by the German newcomer John Reich.
