Lesher Referendum Medals


Multi-Media Summary

At the turn of the 20th century, in the Rocky Mountain mining town of Victor, Colorado, Joseph Lesher issued octagonal, 1-ounce silver medals that were redeemable by local merchants. No accurate records have been found that explain how many of these "Referendum Dollars" were struck. ANA Treasurer Adna Wilde Jr., who has assembled a comprehensive listing of such pieces, explains how they came to be issued and what he has discovered through his studies. Lecture with slides.
