A new edition of Matthew Chiarello's book on Inaugural Medals has just been published. He provided this overview. Thanks!
This time last year, I published a guide to official presidential inaugural medals. The original numbered hardcover edition is nearly sold out and features each of the medals through President Trump. A few months ago, I updated the guide in softcover to include the President Biden medal and a few other improvements. This is the first authoritative guide on the subject since the early 1980s.
The book is a complete guide to official presidential and vice-presidential inaugural medals from William McKinley to Joe Biden. The updated and expanded version contains full-color images, along with a mintage and price guide for identifying medals and tracking collections. Limited hardcover first edition copies are available at Lori Ferber Presidential Collectibles. The softcover second edition is available on Amazon.
I was honored to be interviewed about the book on the Coin World Podcast (Episode #99, Hail to the Chief and to present on the medals at the Newman Numismatic Portal Symposium.
