Lt. Zebulon Pike's Travels & Centennial Medals


Multi-Media Summary

Three boxes of 1906 Pike medals struck by the U.S. Mint were stored for years at Colorado Springs' First National Bank. The bank subsequently donated the medals to raise money for the city's sesquicentennial celebration in 1956. Local numismatist Bob Taylor, who spent more than a year researching the medals and coordinating their sale, shares the story behind their issuance. Lecture with slides. Speaker(s): C. Robert Taylor.
