    Scarce 1876 Julian CM-11 U.S. Centennial Medal

    1876 U.S. Centennial Medal. Julian CM-11. White metal, 57 mm, 62 gm. Dies by Charles Barber. R.W. Julian (1977) suggests that the Philadelphia Mint produced only 583 medals in this format. The obverse features a standing Liberty holding wreaths above figures of Arts, Industry and Defense with 1876 in exergue. The peripheral legend reads IN COMMEMORATION OF THE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY OF AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE / ACT OF CONGRESS JUNE 1874. The reverse design displays Liberty laying down her sword while reaching to the stars with her other arm and the legend THESE UNITED COLONIES ARE, AND OF RIGHT OUGHT TO BE, FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES, with the date 1776 in exergue. The current piece shows only a few scattered abrasions and a small rim bump at 9 o'clock on the reverse. An attractive and historically important medal.
