Produced at West Point from 1980 to 1984, the United States Mint issued a series of 1 Oz American Arts Commemorative Gold Medallions, honoring the nation’s most accomplished musicians, painters, authors, architects and actors.

Created to compete with the success of South African Gold Krugerrands, each medallion contains One Troy Ounce of Gold, mixed with copper for durability. The medallions were released alongside their Oz gold counterparts.

The obverse of each 1 Oz Commemorative Arts Gold Coin bears a portrait of the American artist celebrated that year. It is inscribed with the words HUMAN RIGHTS and ONE OUNCE FINE GOLD. For the first two years of issue, the medallions were not inscribed with their metal content or nation of origin, to differentiate them from federal coins.

Obverse by year:

  • 1980 Grant Wood–Painter who portrayed the Midwest. Works include American Gothic.
  • 1981 Mark Twain–Beloved author and humorist whose novels include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
  • 1982 Louis Armstrong–Influential 1920s jazz musician from New Orleans.
  • 1983 Robert Frost–Colloquial poet and winner of four Pulitzer Prizes.
  • 1984 Helen Hayes–American actress, one of only 11 people to win the elusive EGOT: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

The reverse of each medallion features a design related to the artist celebrated that year.

Reverse by year:

  • 1980 Painting, American Gothic
  • 1981 A steamboat motif
  • 1982 Trumpet with music notes
  • 1983 Excerpt from The Road Not Taken
  • 1984 Comedy and drama masks
