This medal was struck by the U.S. Mint to commemorate Leslie M. Shaw, who served as Secretary of the Treasury from 1902 to 1907. During his term, Shaw was commended by then President Theodore Roosevelt for preventing a monetary crisis. Shaw accomplished this by placing funds in key banks throughout the country and then insisting that these funds by used to further the needs of Commerce. Shaw's position was that bank reserves were to be accumulated in good times and used to support public commerce in bad times. A lesson that has somehow been lost, these days.
Struck in bronze, it is rectangular and about 2" x 3", in size. As you will see from the photos, the medal is in excellent condition. It will be packaged for shipment in a non-PVC plastic flip, as shown.
