This Gold medal was issued in 1979 to commemorate John Paul Jones, commanding the US Navy's BonHomme Richard, and his great victory over the British warship, HMS Serapis in 1779. Struck in .900 fine Gold, this medal bears a portrait of Jones surrounded by his famous quote "I HAVE NOT YET BEGUN TO FIGHT". The other side features an image of one of the warships surrounded by the words "THE BONHOMME RICHARD DEFEATS THE SERAPIS" with the date of the battle (23 September 1779). Comes in a velvet lined wooden display case. A nice item honoring the US Navy's first great hero! AGW= 1.0 troy ounce.
