Franklin D. Roosevelt was the longest serving United States president, elected four times from 1932 to 1944. Not surprisingly, he's been portrayed on a wide variety of medals struck by the United States Mint. This presentation will provide an overview of those medals, including the Presidential, Assay, Mint Visit, and Memorial series, as well as the two people most responsible for them, Mint Director Nellie Tayloe Ross and Chief Engraver John Ray Sinnock. Presented as part of the Newman Portal Symposium, April 8-10, 2022. Speaker(s): Heath MacAlpine.
