The course of history changed on November 4, 2008 with the election of the 44th President of the United States, the Nation’s first African-American Commander-in-Chief. It’s a moment captured forever in the Historic Victory plate. This limited-edition fine-porcelain heirloom from the American Historic Society commemorates the night that AMerica found hope and welcomed change.
Designed by artist Roger Cunningham, the front of the Historic Victory plate is inscribed with the election date and the words “Change has come.” The back of the plate bears the seal of the American Historic Society, marking its importance and integrity, and the historic popular and electoral vote totals. The plate is trimmed in rich 22-carat gold.
This box includes:
- One original Historic Victory Plate
- One Certificate of Authenticity
It is a true piece of history – the first of its kind – that was created during one of only 65 firing days. After that, the die will be destroyed and no more of these priceless works of art will ever be made. The Historic Victory plate is a family treasure that will be prized for generations to come.
