Composition: Copper
Diameter: 46mm
Thickness: 3mm

This beautiful medal was issued to correspond with the presentation of a Bronze tablet from the citizens of Olympia Washington to the USFS Olympia upon her return from the Spanish American War.

In a special ceremony conducted on September 29, 1899 the massive bronze tablet, four feet high and three hundred pounds in weight, was mounted on the forward turret of the Protected Cruiser Olympia immediately between its two great guns- a tribute "From Olympia to Olympia". The plaque was designed by a young American sculptor, Paul Winters Morris, under the supervision and guidance of his mentor Daniel Chester French. The central portion of the tablet depicts Victory in flowing robes, bearing in her outstretched hands a scroll across which is inscribed Dewey's historic command, "GRIDLEY, YOU MAY FIRE WHEN READY" Below the scroll in six straight lines divided by the figure of Victory is the inscription; "FROM THE CITIZENS OF OLYMPIA AND STATE OF WASHINGTON GREETINGS OF OLYMPIA TO HER NAMESAKE MDCCC XCVIII"

To commemorate the dedication of that tablet a bronze medal was struck bearing on its obverse a replica of the original plaque and on its reverse a likeness of Admiral Dewey and an impression of the Flagship Olympia.

Reference: "From Olympia To Olympia" by William Dewey in THE NUMISMATIST, January, 1946 pages 6 - 7.

This beautiful medal is an historic artifact of the Battle of Manila Bay. By the 1960's the U.S.S. Olympia, Admiral Dewey's Flagship during the great navel battle, was desperately in need of repairs and restoration. In order to fund the Olympia's restoration the Cruiser Olympia Association had one of the Olympia's Bronze propellers melted and struck into commemorative medals which were sold to the general public. The medals were struck in two sizes, the large 75.5 mm medal depicted here and a much more common 31mm medal utilizing the same design.

During the Spanish American War of 1898 the Philippine Revolutionary Forces (who had been in rebellion against a tyrannical Spanish government since 1896) fought as allies of the United States. When Spain was defeated our Filipino allies fully expected that they would be granted full independence. Anticipating this event they convened a congress in the municipality of Malolos to adopt a constitution. This VERY RARE Proclamation Medal was issued to commemorate the ratification of the Malolos Constitution which established the first Philippine Republic on January 21, 1899. When it was learned that the Treaty of Paris (February 1899) which ended the Spanish American War ceded sovereignty over the Philippines from Spain to the United States the Philippine Republic declared War on the United States igniting the Philippine American War of 1899 - 1902.
