Spotlight on National Medals

The United States Mint produces commemorative national medals as authorized by the United States Congress. These medals commemorate historic events and people significant to the United States. For a historical figure to appear on a national medal, he or she must have demonstrated superior achievements that have benefited the United States or the world.

Official national medals are cast of gold. When appropriate, and approved by U.S. legislation, the U.S. Mint may produce bronze duplications of national medals for sale to the general public. The U.S. Mint also produces list medals as part of a continuing series, such as Presidents of the United States, Secretaries of the Treasury, Directors of the Mint, and Historic Buildings of the United States.
