Washington — The United States Mint (Mint) will begin accepting orders for the Andrew Jackson Presidential Silver Medal (product code S807) on February 24 at noon EST. The medal is priced at $46.00.
Struck in 99.9 percent fine silver, the medal features Jackson’s portrait on the obverse (heads) with the inscriptions ANDREW JACKSON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, and A.D.1829.
Moritz Furst, an early 19th-century medallic artist, designed and sculpted the obverse.
The medal’s reverse (tails) features the inscription PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP, symbolized by two hands clasped in a token of amity. On the cuff of the left wrist are three stripes and buttons, while the other wrist is bare. Above the hands, the pipe of peace and tomahawk are crossed over each other. The reverse was designed and sculpted by John Reich, United States Mint Assistant Engraver in the early 19th century.
Each medal is encapsulated and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
