Part of a brief series of five satirical medals with themes that, in the opinion of this cataloger, run to the right side of the political aisle. Designed with highly nuanced iconography and an eye toward classical motifs, this series is unparalleled in modern American numismatics and should appeal to everyone, no matter their personal ideologies.
