Description

The medal's obverse design depicts the right-side profile of Andrew Jackson, the seventh President of the United States. Also pictured on the obverse are a sword, pistol, powder horn, and olive branch. On the reverse, an eagle is featured at the center, and it holds an olive branch in its talons. A pair of male and female pioneer-like figures stand to the eagle's proper right. Two soldiers standing in front of a cannon stand to the eagle's proper left. Above the eagle, a partial map is pictured, and below three picture symbols appear, which include a star, a triangle with two perpendicular lines, and two intersecting swords.
