Bicentennial Wagon Train Pilgrimage

1976 Medallion Collection

In 1975, as the Bicentennial of the American Revolution neared, people began planning events to mark the occasion. One such event was the Bicentennial Wagon Train Pilgrimage. The plan was to have covered wagons embark from each state, travel along the well-known trails (Santa Fe Trail, Appalachian Trail, etc.) of their ancestors, and converge together at the Valley Forge National Historic Park to celebrate on July 4, 1976. Pennsylvania bought and gave a wagon to each state to use as the official state wagon and underwrote the project. Encyclopedia Britannica produced scrolls to be carried from town to town by the wagons, where residents could sign vowing their “rededication to the principles of the Declaration of Independence.” To commemorate this historic event a limited edition pewter medallion was minted.

This commemorative medallion is sold in a clear lucite capsule.
