The 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair---also known as the Louisiana Purchase Exposition---marked the 100th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase, which dramatically broadened the territory of the United States. Adolph Weinman created this alternate design for the reverse of the commemorative medal (see 1970.217a-b), which was available to fairgoers in St. Louis for fifty cents.
