Patriotic Inscriptions

"May Our Country" medalets

These are named after the reverse die which is combined with 4 different
obverse dies. Neil Musante in "Medallic Washington" calls these part of
George H. Lovett's Third Series and says these were "neither advertised or
promoted in any way". The other two reverse dies are his Born, Died die
and the Shield and Star die. I am not sure this was intended as a series; the
first obverse die is only found with this reverse and not the other two and
it is only this combination that is found in silver. Is it possible that these two
dies - 'The Defender Of His Country' and 'May Our Country' were the
original pairing, George H. later muling them wherever he could?

Reverse die

This quote comes from a letter Washington wrote to Jefferson in 1786,
the full quote being "The pillars of the Revolution are falling all around
me. Others are mouldering by sure though insensible decay. May
our country never wants props, to support the glorious fabric".
