This medal is a bronze duplicate of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to the White Mountain Apache Tribe Code Talkers at a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Building on November 20, 2013, in recognition of their dedication and valor. The medal measures three inches in diameter.
The obverse design features Code Talkers behind sandbags. The Code Talker in the foreground is using a field phone to deliver a message, while the one in the background writes the coded message. Inscriptions are “WHITE MOUNTAIN APACHE TRIBE” and “CODE TALKERS.”
The reverse design features a variation of the White Mountain Apache Tribe seal. The seal depicts a rainbow rising against the sky over a landscape with an elk standing by a river near a wikiup, or traditional dwelling. Snow-capped mountains are in the distance, while nearer, at the base of the seal, is a pine forest. An earthen Apache vase, seen in the foreground, is flanked by two feathers and a pair of lightning bolts near the outer edge of the seal. Inscriptions are “WORLD WAR II” and “ACT OF CONGRESS 2008.”
