OFFICIAL GEORGE BUSH INAUGURAL MEDAL


The George Bush medal marks the American Bicentennial of the inauguration of the President of the United States. Mico Kaufman was again chosen to create the official medal. For this sensitive portrait of President Bush, Kaufman sought to portray Bush as a man of purpose and high idea with vision and yet concern for the awesome tasks ahead. The reverse design features an an unusual perspective of the U.S. Capital building dome with the "Freedom" sculpture prominently featured. Once again the Medallic Art Company was chosen to produce the medals. There were 6.884 70mm bronze medals struck.

The larger medals have so much room for detail and artistic design. These are a good tribute.

Thanks for posting about medals. My new found interest is medals, and can't wait for shows to start up so I can look at some medals in person. Presidential medals seem like a great niche in the medal collecting area.

The Medallic Art Co. has always done a fine job of designing and producing some of the most beautiful medals there are. This one is no exception as it is a wonderful representation of President Bush "41".
