    100257 | UNITED STATES. Nickel–Silver Medal. Struck 1981. R. W. Julian's Satirical Series: The Degradation of our Justice System (63mm, 143.81 g, 12h). By W. Williams.


    THЄ LAWS SHALL BЄ FAITHFULLY ЄXЄCUTЄD, bust of George Washington right / THЄ CRIMINAL IS SЄT FRЄЄ WHILЄ THЄ VICTIM IS FORGOTTЄN, facing half-length bust of Justice, with blindfold covering only one eye and holding scales dramatically tipped; in exergue, broken sword above JUSTICЄ IN AMЄRICA. Edge: © 1981 MEDALLIC ART CO. - DANBURY, CT – NICKEL SILVER.


    RWJ 81. Mint State. The fifth and final in R. W. Julian's series. Mintage of just 50 pieces in this alloy.


    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.
