Coin value Martin van buren medallion?

I really need to see both sides so I can compare it with resource material that's available on some of the numerous sets of presidential medals/medallions that have been issued over the years. Look for any sort of markings along the edge and pass that along too. Most 'common' presidents have limited value by themselves unless one happens to fill a hole in someone's set. But some sets were issued in either sterling or .999 fine silver, and those are worth the silver.

What is the first word that comes to your head when you hear the word "Trump"?

If I had a word, I would say “Sulla”.Sulla was a Roman general, who in 82BC was appointed sole dictatorship over Rome. He took many duties of government onto himself and ruthlessly purged his enemies while in power. Sulla’s rule heralded the beginning of the end of the Roman Republic and the legal and democratic traditions therein. Upon his resignation, the Republic continued for a while, but it was never really the same. With a generation, Rome was a dictatorship, and the niceties of law came a poor second to the will of the Emperors.In his desire for absolute control, Trump reminds me of Sulla, but that in itself would not make him much different to the legions of tawdry, corrupt autocrats that litter the pages of history. It’s more about what the Trump presidency signifies. Even if he is deposed, or loses after the first term, or ends his days in jail (we can only hope), his legacy will be the damage that he has done to the American Republic. Unless there is an effort to bolster democratic traditions, reflect on the circumstances that brought him into power, and implement real reforms, a more cunning and dangerous individual might get elected in the near future. I worry, not so much about Trump, but about who might be coming next.
