This 3 Inch Bronze Medal commemorates Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Norman Borlaug. Order this unique medal for your collection.

Authorized by Public Law 109-395, this medal commemorates Dr. Norman Borlaug for his accomplishments in terms of bringing radical change to world agriculture and uplifting humanity and in recognition of his enduring contributions to the United States and the world. Following World War II, Dr. Borlaug made a key breakthrough in developing a strand of wheat that could exponentially increase yields while actively resisting disease.

In 1970, Dr. Borlaug received the Nobel Peace Prize as the only person working in the field of agriculture to ever be so honored. Since then, he has received numerous honors and awards including the Presidential Medal of Freedom; the Public Service Medal, the National Academy of Sciences' highest honor; and the Rotary International Award for World Understanding and Peace. The medal is a bronze replica of the Congressional Gold Medal presented to Dr. Borlaug at a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Building on July 17, 2007.

The obverse designed and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill, features an image of Dr. Borlaug making notes on experiments conducted with wheat in Mexico in the early 1960s, with the inscription “NORMAN BORLAUG.”

The reverse designed and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart, depicts hands holding strands of wheat developed by Dr. Norman Borlaug. The central image depicts a globe with a quote by Borlaug: “THE FIRST ESSENTIAL COMPONENT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE IS ADEQUATE FOOD FOR ALL MANKIND.” Additional inscriptions are “Act of Congress” and “2006.”
