PRESIDENTS AND MINT ENGRAVERS: WHO VISITED WHO?

Tom DeLorey writes: "The discussion of Presidential visits to
the U.S. Mint makes me wonder what the protocol was when it
came time for a new president to "sit" for his inaugural medal
or any later presidential medals done by the Mint. In the days
when the President of the United States did not have a world to
run, did he journey to Philadelphia and visit the Chief Engraver,
or did the Chief Engraver journey to Washington, D.C. and make
drawings?"

[My money is on the artist visiting Washington or working from
other artists' sketches or drawings.  Can anyone fill us in?
