These medals were made by Tiffany (signed on the edge) during Presidential campaigns of 1896 and 1900. They were satirical of Bryan and his cause. These silver medals showed comparative size and ratio of a dollar struck at the then-current price of gold with what it would be like if free coinage were to rule. They are much more than mere political pieces as they bore direct reference to the silver controversy and, hence, to our national coinage. See Bryan biographical sketch and story of Gold and Silver Controversy. This is unpolished with a beautiful original patina.
