52.8 millimeters. A prooflike piece with yellow-gold color and only a trace of friction to the highpoints, over which features one can discern portions of the underlying copper or bronze metal. Scattered abrasions are small in size, and none are worthy of individual attention. Gilt examples of this type are not listed in the 1999 book Medallic Portraits of Washington by Russell Rulau and George Fuld.
