CFA Number: CFA 20/JUN/13–a
Owner(s): U.S. Mint –
Address:  –
Description: Congressional Gold Medal honoring the service of Native American code talkers; Designs for seven gold medals (with silver and bronze duplicates) – Final

RECOMMENDATION: Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes: Obverse #1; the size of the central design elements should be reduced to avoid crowding the peripheral text. Reverse #4, with two modifications: the size of the central map should be reduced so that it does not intersect other design elements; and the eagle staffs should be adjusted to avoid reaching the edge of the medal.

Cherokee Nation: Obverse #5 as the strongest graphic design. Reverse #1 as the best composition. The design benefits from the hierarchical variation of text size along the periphery; some of the other alternatives simply use equally sized text.

Ho–Chunk Nation: Obverse #7 as the strongest graphic design and best rendering. Reverse #1 as the most legible design; the eagle’s wing should be adjusted to avoid overlapping with the peripheral text "World War II."

Meskwaki Nation: Obverse #2; the central design elements should be adjusted to avoid overlapping the peripheral text. Alternative #4 is also noteworthy but too complex for the medal design. Reverse #2 due to the simple border treatment, with the peripheral text configured as in alternative #3, or else the feathers should be reconfigured so they do not overlap the text.

Oglala Sioux Tribe: Obverse #2 as the most graphically convincing design, with simplification of the background to avoid confusion of the branches with the radio equipment. Reverse #3, as preferred by the Oglala Sioux Tribe.

Seminole Nation: Obverse #3 due to the clear composition and the detailing of the pose and chin; alternative #4 is also a strong candidate. Reverse #1 as the simplest design.

Yankton Sioux Tribe: Obverse #2 as the most interesting composition. Reverse #1 due to the superior depiction of the animal skull.
