First Look! John Tyler Presidential Silver Medal

The United States Mint has released first official images of the upcoming John Tyler Presidential Silver Medal. The latest medal in the series, honoring the 10th President of the United States, is set to go on sale August 2, 2021 at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific. It will be priced at $65.00 and will be the third and final medal for the series released this year.

John Tyler was the 10th U.S. President, serving from April 6, 1841, to March 3, 1845. He was the first Vice President to succeed to the Presidency after the death of his predecessor.

As has been the case with the Presidential Silver Medal series, the Obverse features a portrait of the honored President with the common Reverse that has been found throughout the series with the exception of the Harrison medal given his short time in office.

The reverse features the inscription “PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP,” symbolized by two hands clasped in token of amity. On the cuff of the left wrist are three stripes and buttons; the other wrist is bare. Above the hands, the pipe of peace and the tomahawk are crossed over each other.
