Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976898608, Hardcover)

Renaissance of American Coinage 1916-1921 describes the origin, design and initial striking of these small medallic ambassadors. The story chronicles initial consultation with the Commission of Fine Arts, bureaucratic confusion, interference by vending machine companies and newspapers, to last minute alterations, and final production. In telling this fascinating story, author Burdette reveals long-untouched correspondence, drawings and models by sculptors Hermon MacNeil, Adolph Weinman, Albin Polasek and Anthony de Francisci. Authoritative text, extensive illustrations and thorough referencing make Renaissance of American Coinage 1916-1921 the only comprehensive source for this important, but often overlooked aspect of American art and numismatics. This book will be of special interest to historians of the early 20th century, coin collectors and fine art sculptors. It is intended to become a standard reference for libraries and historical research facilities. Renaissance of American Coinage 1916-1921 is the first of three books exploring the coinage redesign of 1907-1921. Companion volumes are expected to be released in late 2005 and 2006.
