A November 24, 2017 article by Brandon Christopher Hall on Coin Update highlights a great medal sold in 2012 by Stack's Bowers. Here's an excerpt, though I would
call the Turkey side the obverse. -Editor
I happened across a relevant gem for the holidays: A 1934 Choice Uncirculated Abundance silver coin in lot 6347. The coin was designed by Albert Laessle and only 125 of them were ever struck. The
striking beauty of the coin immediately swept me off my feet.
On the obverse, we are treated to a gorgeous ear of corn reminiscent in style to the French fleur-de-lis, with an inscription encircling the top perimeter of the coin reading ABUNDANCE.
The reverse of the coin was even more majestic, featuring a proud turkey with outstretched breast strutting gallantly toward an unseen objective. The word AMERICA is displayed in the upper-left
quadrant of the coin, while ALBERT-LAESSLE claims the lower-right.
