Here’s your opportunity to own a beautiful medal struck in the 1920s for the Guttag Brothers – one of whom (Julius) helped form National Coin Week 89 years ago! In the 1920s and ’30s, Henry and Julius Guttag were well known in the numismatic community. From their offices in New York City, the brothers helped bring publicity to the hobby. Securities dealers by trade, the pair was also responsible for publishing several coin reference books, some of which are still used today!
Throughout the Roaring Twenties, a number of medals were ordered by the Guttag Brothers to advertise their business. Struck by the Medallic Art Company, the piece offered here displays a beautiful art deco rendering of a muse holding the lamp of knowledge over someone studying a coin.
These medals seldom become available in any quantity – in fact, this is the first time we’ve ever been able to offer them. Order today, and add an affordable piece of numismatic history to your collection!
