The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1.5 inch Bronze Medal is a bronze duplicate of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded posthumously to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King in recognition of their many contributions to the Nation on behalf of the civil rights movement. The medal measures 1.5 inches in diameter and is the same diameter and thickness as the gold medal.

The obverse design features portraits of Dr. King and Coretta Scott King.  Beneath the portraits is a banner with the inscription "FOR THEIR SERVICE TO HUMANITY." Other inscriptions include “DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.” and “CORETTA SCOTT KING” along the top of the medal and the inscription “ACT OF CONGRESS 2004.”

The reverse features an image of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, which remains the official legacy of Dr. King’s dream of nonviolent social change and full civil rights for all Americans. Below the image of the center is a quote reflective of Dr. King’s beliefs of nonviolent social change. The lower half of the medal is encircled with a wreath of laurel.

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King Congressional Gold Medal was awarded in honor of their contributions to the Nation on behalf of the civil rights movement and to recognize:

  • The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his widow Coretta Scott King as the first family of the civil rights movement, who had distinguished records of public service to the American people and the international community.
  • Dr. King’s doctrine of nonviolent civil disobedience to combat segregation, discrimination and racial injustice.
  • Dr King’s August 28, 1963, march on Washington that featured his most famous address, the “I have a dream” speech.
  • Dr. King’s assassination for his beliefs on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee.
  • Mrs. King’s entrance into the civil rights movement in 1955 during the Montgomery bus boycott and the important role she played as a leader of the American civil rights movement.
  • Mrs. King’s devotion to developing and building the Atlanta-based Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change after Dr. King’s assassination.
  • Mrs. King’s role in the campaign to establish Dr. King’s birthday as a national holiday.
