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.
