Laessle, in the brochure that accompanied the medal, said this of his creation: "Wishing to symbolize the abundance of America, I have chosen for my medal two truly American subjects, the turkey and the corn." Despite the country being in the depths of the Great Depression at the time of this madal's issuance, it is hard to overlook the concept of giving thanks and valuing whatever one may have.
