SOLD

Details

1908 (1910) Grover Cleveland Vox Populi medallic plaque. Silver, 78 x 90 mm. By J.E. Roine. Choice About Uncirculated. Edge marked STERLING, MED. ART CO. and 22. Struck in 1910 by Medallic Art Company for the American Numismatic Society, with the diminutive logo of the ANS in the lower left corner of the obverse. A very scarce item in silver, with a mintage of just 50 and likely fewer surviving. 100 pieces were also struck in bronze. Coined as a memorial to the late President, the obverse features a fine portrait of Cleveland with the legend Vox Populi for "the voice of the people," while the reverse shows a "seated figure representing Democracy, with the face turned to the left; in the background, a column and a public building," according to the description in the official ANS exhibit catalogue of 1910. The last two silver examples sold in Presidential Coin and Antique's Sale 83 (2013) and Sale 78 (2008) brought $1035 and $1092.50, respectively. While Cleveland may be largely forgotten today, he was beloved in his time and holds the distinction of winning the popular vote for President three times. He died in 1908, a little more than a decade after leaving the White House. This elusive and attractive memorial medal is a key inclusion in a set of ANS issues and represents the first medal in the ANS series produced by Medallic Art Company.
