Brookgreen Gardens


BG-27: Working with Wind on the Water
by Richard McDermott Miller

The Brookgreen Gardens medals are somewhat of an afterthought of a wonderful organization that deals primarily with sculpture and nature, particularly sculpture in nature. Brookgreen Gardens is a magical place that combines nature and sculpture to create a unique environment.

Its roots go back to 1931 when Archer Milton Huntington, a well-known philanthropist and benefactor of the American Numismatic Society, and his famous sculptor-medallist wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, acquired four tracts of adjacent lands. They started commissioning and installing sculpture and opened the grounds to the public in 1937.

With Anna Hyatt Huntington's background as a medalist it is somewhat surprising that the fledgling organization did not immediately issue medals. It took till 1945 before Gertrude Lathrop created a medal for Brookgreen Gardens. An almost thirty year hiatus followed before the next medal was issued in 1973. The sculptor-president of the Gardens, Carl Paul Jennewein, took it upon himself to create a similar medal that bore the conjoined portraits of the Huntingtons, and the Fighting Stallions. They are somewhat of a symbol for the Gardens because Anna Hyatt Huntington herself created the massive bronze located at the Gardens entrance.

It took the intersection of Brookgreen Gardens and the Society of Medalists in the person of Joseph Veitch Noble to create a regular medal program. He was both the president of Brookgreen Gardens and the executive director of the Society of Medalists and he saw an untapped potential at Brookgreen Gardens. Under his tenure, membership was increased to $250 a year but with the higher fee came a member medal which referenced the unique institution. This annual medal program is still going strong today and ended up surviving its older and better known cousin, the Society of Medalists.

Collecting Brookgreen Gardens

For the collector, the Brookgreen Gardens series is very attractive for many reasons:

  • The medals are highly appealing and very decorative. Many are represented in museum and college collections.
  • The medals typically trade in the $150 to $600 price range.
  • There is a reasonable amount of trading at almost all times, so it won't take you forever to build or dispose of your collection by dealer or auction.
  • The medals have held their value well over time and you can buy newly issued ones by becoming a member of Brookgreen Gardens.

But most of all, the medals are really enjoyable and that's of course the only reason you should collect them. If you hold them for a long time, they probably won't be a bad investment either.

Next Steps

  1. Take a look at all the medals in the other tabs of this page. The Medals tab leads to a pretty long list medal images and descriptions.
  2. Contact me if you are interested in buying or selling medals or want to help me improve the site. I am always interested in buying to complete or improve my own collection. Sometimes I have duplicates that I would be willing to sell. If you cannot or will not sell medals that I still need, at least share your high-quality pictures so I can complete the display section. If I don't have a picture for a medal, I don't have the medal in my collection and I would be interested in buying it.
