This plentiful commemorative was designed by Gutzon Borglum, who later became very well known for the creation of Mount Rushmore. First struck on Jan 21, 1925, "Stonewall" Jackson's Birthday, this coin was intended to memorialize "The Valor of the Soldier of the South." Therefore it features the equestrian portraits of Civil War Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. The reverse features a great rendition of an eagle perched on a cliff with wings open.
Now, in 2020, with all of the political and fascist revolt and destruction going on, Stone Mountain (Atlanta, GA) is in the news. A misguided few would like to see the destruction this huge bas relief. Distribution is now pegged at 1.3+ million. My personal observation is that many of these were somewhat poorly struck with worn dies. I selected this one because the strike is very good, although the surfaces could be better.
