1915 Panama-pacific International Exposition San Francisco Medal In Case, Bronze:
You are offerding on a Bronze Award Medal of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) held in San Francisco, California, United States, between February 20 and December 4 in 1915. Its ostensible purpose was to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, but it was widely seen in the city as an opportunity to showcase its recovery from the 1906 earthquake.
This item is a brown circular metal medal with low relief images on both sides and comes with its original BLACK PRESENTATION CASE. On one side of the medal is an image of a building flanked by two leafy branches that cross at the bottom. In between the leafy branches is a tablet with the words “MEDAL OF AWARD”. Around the edge of the medal is the text “PANAMA-PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION SAN FRANCISCO MCMXV”. On the other side of the medal is and image of a naked man and woman facing each other with a rising sun and clouds between them. At the bottom edge of the medal is the text “DIVINE DISIVNCTA IVNXIT HOMO”. The case is a round lid and base made of metal covered with black textured textile.
DISCLAIMER ~ ~ PLEASE, let me finish by saying - I am by far, no expert on Medals. I have spent hours on research for this medal and it seems to depend on which web site, or description one reads, which is truly accurate. So even though I believe the above to be correct, I would encourage you to do your own research on the medal.
