About the Model

Andrew Jackson was the 7th president of the United States. This is a Presidential Portrait Coin of Andrew Jackson. Presidential portrait medals were created to promote peace and friendship between the Americans and Native Americans. While they had good intentions, a number of government policies, such as the Indian Removal Act, signed by Andrew Jackson undermined these intentions. Dimensions: 3in (7.6cm) Type: Silver
