Large Collection of Indian Peace Medals Crossing the Auction Block in August​

As Stack's Bowers Galleries looks forward to the August ANA World's Fair of Money auctions, we focus on a wonderful offering of Indian Peace medals. Highlights include:

An 1801 Thomas Jefferson small-size Indian Peace medal (Julian IP-4, Prucha-39), weighing 728.1 grains and measuring 54.4 mm. This design ranks #3 in the book The 100 Greatest American Medals and Tokens. Stack's Bowers Galleries previously sold a Choice Extremely Fine specimen in September 2009 for $138,000.  These stunning Jefferson Peace medals were distributed by Lewis and Clark during their journey from St. Louis to the Pacific and back. We expect this medal to realize well over $100,000.

A James A. Garfield Indian Peace medal (IP-44, Prucha-55) graded About Uncirculated. This popular oval type is a New Discovery of the rarest medal of the series. Twenty-five silver Garfield medals were struck and presented to the Yankton Sioux, Western Shoshonis, and Mescalero Agencies. This particular medal was presented to the Yankton Sioux.

An 1809 James Madison large-size silver medal (IP-5, Prucha-40). This Very Fine medal was holed for suspension and shows considerable surface marks. It is interesting to note that many of these medals were marked with the recipient's names as a sign of pride. Fewer than 15 are known and this example was a new discovery when it was previously sold in 2012.
