Lincoln Facts -- Principles & Values Coin
“The Facts” Principles & Values Coin
Ours is a government of the American people, born of the truth that a nation’s powers are derived from its citizens. This medal is a stunning modern embodiment of that essential belief, carrying the words of two of our nation’s most prominent thinkers and is ideal as a gift for a fellow citizen, to display among your prized possessions, or to open discussion with those who may not share your principles and values. America is good, and this medallion is a tangible and enduring symbol of that fact.
The obverse of this medal features America’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, and his quote, “Let the people know the facts and the country will be saved.” Lincoln put his trust squarely in the people and revered America’s government of the people, by the people, and for the people – which is why he believed it essential to give Americans the facts.
The reverse features one of America’s most important founders, John Adams, who noted that “facts are stubborn things” as he defended the soldiers who were on trial for the Boston Massacre. Despite the swirling anger about the murder of five Americans, Adams, at great professional and personal cost, reminded all that it is essential to grasp for the facts and not fall victim to the passions of the day.
These two American giants still live in our minds today. Make your connection real; take this medallion – solid brass, minted in high relief with exceptional detail – and challenge any and all to refute its undying truths. Affirm the principles and values that make America great, and you a great American. Make this medal yours, or bestow it – in its handsome gift box – upon any who share your American dream.
