Guatemala, gold medal for the Central American Union Pact, 1890, NGC MS 62, ex-Walter (stated on slab). Prober-350. 32.99 grams, 37mm. Highly artistic medal (rather "busy" in design) struck to commemorate the October 15, 1889, Central American Union Pact, the obverse showing five mountains under rainbow and radiant Liberty cap inside triangle within palm-and-oak wreath within legend VIVA LA REPUBLICA DE CENTRO-AMERICA *, and the reverse showing 15 / DE OCTUBRE / DE / 1889 above laurel wreath within PACTO DE UNION / Loor al Patriotismo within legend DIOS UNION LIBERTAD / GUATEMALA 1890. Lustrous and lightly bagmarked but no wear, sharply struck, from a set that also contained silver and bronze examples but this gold piece of course the most important. NGC #4929675-001. Pedigreed to the John I. Walter collection.
