Wayne Medal Front

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Gold medal awarded by Congress to General Wayne. This is a representation of the medal, the size of the original. On this side is a device repesenting an Indian queen crowned, a quiver on her back, and wearing a short apron of feathers. A mantle hangs from her waist behind, the upper end of which appears as if passed through the girdle of her apron, and hangs gracefully by her side. With her right hand she is presenting a wreath to General Wayne; in her left she is holding up a mural crown toward his head. At her feet, on the left, an alligator is lying. The American shield is resting against the animal. Over the figure is the legend ‘Antonio Wayne duci exercitas,’ and beneath, ‘Comitia Americana,’ ‘The American Congress to General Anthony Wayne.’"—Lossing, 1851
