    Commodore Perry Medal, SP62
    Rare Silver Example, Julian PE-26

    (1856) Commodore M.C. Perry Medal SP62 PCGS. Julian PE-26. Silver, 63 mm. Dies by Francis N. Mitchell. Commodore Perry's naval brigade obligated Japan to begin trade with the West. In gratitude, Boston merchants commissioned the present medal. Bronze examples sell at auction with some frequency, but silver examples are rare, from a mintage of 20 pieces. Our auction archives show only one prior appearance in silver, lot 38271 in our May 2011 Americana Signature. This sharply struck specimen has light magenta toning, with powder-blue accompanying design recesses. Marks are minimal across the mattelike surfaces.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
