Lewis & Clark National Hist. Trail Friendship Coin
In 1804 President Thomas Jefferson ordered an expedition to explore the land acquired in the Louisiana Purchase. One of the tasks given to the Corps of Volunteers for Northwest Discovery leaders Meriwether Lewis and William Clark was forging diplomatic relationships with the American Indians they met. Lewis and Clark presented tribal leaders with Jefferson Peace Medals as a token of goodwill. These medals featured Thomas Jefferson on the front; on the back were two clasped hands below a crossed axe and peace pipe, surrounded by the words "Peace and Friendship." You can give your friend this symbol of goodwill (or keep it for yourself!) when you buy this replica Jefferson Peace Medal.
