Add this Professor Muhammad Yunus 1.5 Inch Bronze Medal to your collection to share his dream of ending world poverty.
This medal is a miniature bronze duplicate of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to Professor Muhammad Yunus at a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Building on April 17, 2013, in recognition of his contributions to fighting global poverty. The medal measures 1.5 inches in diameter.
The obverse features a portrait of Professor Yunus with the traditional Bengali jamdani fabric design, reflecting his optimistic and cheerful demeanor. Jamdani is a Bengali hand-woven fabric made of cotton, historically referred to as muslin. Inscriptions are “PROFESSOR MUHAMMAD YUNUS,” “ACT OF CONGRESS” and “2010.”
The reverse, designed by U.S. Mint AIP Master Designer Richard Masters and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz, depicts a lotus open in full bloom, rising above the water and cradling the world in its petals, symbolizing Professor Yunus's dream to end world poverty. The design is partially framed by the inscription “BANKER TO THE POOR,” a common reference to Yunus. The Bengali translation for “Let us send poverty to the museum” is inscribed on the globe.
