    Highlight: after only the 1756 Kittanning Destroyed medal (Betts 400) and the 1757 Quaker Indian Peace Medal (Betts 401), both of which are domestically produced medals of the French and Indian War. Since these two medals are both of a military or strategy nature, the silver Literary Premium of the Literary Society of King’s college is the first American-produced medal of a purely civilian nature. In addition, the Gallaudet medals are the first collegiate academic award medals produced and issued in the thirteen colonies, as the earlier but no longer extant 1762 Sargent medal (awarded in 1766) of the College and Academy of Philadelphia (University of Pennsylvania) was produced in England. The second class of King’s College medals consists of a single medal held by the Columbiana Library at Columbia
