This design by Di Lorenzo was chosen as the 107th issue of the prestigious Society of Medalists series.
Its obverse bears Merlin and knights watching Arthur drawing the sword from an anvil. On anvil, incuse EXCALIBUR; on building at left, signed JDL sc. with initials in script.
The reverse bears a mountaintop castle with six towers around keep; clouds behind. Below, CAMELOT.
While the Arthurian legend is very popular and has been told, retold, and re-retold many times, I have never been a fan of anything but the original and the most faithful renditions. This medal with its mythical castle and a somewhat stylized depiction of the crucial moment in Arthur's life does not talk to me like many of the other medals of the series do.
The medal measures 73mm in diameter and was produced by the Medallic Art Company of Danbury, Connecticut. Its reported mintage is 750 pieces in bronze.
