The Libertas Americana medal is one of the most famous and cherished of all the medals relating to American history. According to the historical record, the brainchild for the medal and its designs was none other than Benjamin Franklin. In a March 1782 letter to Robert Livingston, U.S. Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Franklin wrote, "This puts me in mind of a medal I have had a mind to strike ... representing the United States by the figure of an infant Hercules in his cradle, strangling the two serpents; and France by that of Minerva, sitting by as his nurse, with her spear and helmet, and her robe specked by a few 'fleurs-de-lis." (quoted in Joseph Loubat's The Medallic History of the United States of America). Clearly, the final design is a bit more aggressive than Franklin's suggestion, but one gets the point nonetheless. This beautiful bronze version of the medal is graded PCGS MS65BN.

The 1958 Canadian Silver Dollar commemorated the establishment of British Columbia as a colony in 1858. Canadian numismatic legend has it that these coins were known as “Death Dollars” as the depiction of a raven on the totem pole represents death - however, this seems apocryphal, and a Western cultural interpretation. The aboriginal people of the Pacific Northwest view the raven as a trickster, or curious spirit, and is seen in their folklore as the creator of the world. This wonderful example is graded PCGS Prooflike 68. 🇨🇦
