JOHN TRUMBULL

 

AMERICAN ART-UNION 1849. Bronze 65mm by Charles Cushing Wright (1796-1854) modeled from a portrait by Robert Ball Hughes (1806-1868).

 

 

 

This was the 3rd & last medal in the First American Medal Series to be struck in America by the U.S. Mint. The medals were designed by Peter Paul Duggan (c1800-1861).

 

Being issued as part of a lottery the anti-lottery laws put an end to this series of medals.
