*PEACE IS LIFE* *WAR IS DEATH* MEDAL

Medals | Kepi

I was lucky enough to have had won this Medal during a heated auction! I was really drawn to the strong theme, "Peace is Life" obverse, "War is Death" reverse. The sculptor is Cecil Howard and was created c. 1950. The medal measures 72mm in diameter and was struck by the Medallic Art Company of New York. Its reported mintage is 842 pieces in silver-plated bronze. This medal was chosen as the 42nd issue of the prestigious Society of Medalists series in 1950. This one has been graded by PCGS as a SP63. There is only one graded higher and none graded lower at PCGS. I feel very honored to have this beautiful Medal in my collection!
