John Quincy Adams Indian Peace Medal- U.S. Mint Small Size Medal


Indian peace medals were originally circular silver medallions used by the U.S. Government to establish relations with Native Americans in the late 18th to 19th century; they were minted until the term of Andrew Johnson ended. Either the President or their agents gave medals to the chiefs of significant warriors of Native American tribes as tokens of friendship, sometimes accompanied by explanations of newly established U.S. sovereignty.

The obverse of these medals shows the Presidents head with the year they were inaugurated. The reverse reads, “Peace and Friendship,” shows clasped hands, and a crossed tomahawk and peace pipe.

Most of these medals come in original U.S. Mint packaging. Perfect for any collector or history buff!
