I've seen these before at various shops and possibly even gun shows, and as I remember they aren't particularly expensive.

I think one sold on eBay recently & there is one listed for $1200 now. Not sure if they are the same.

These are restrike as the originals were a gold tone color were made in France and were Funded by Confederate subscriptions, the Jackson Memorial Medals were prepared to be presented to members of the Stonewall Brigade. While the medals successfully ran the Union Blockade, many were ultimately lost, only to be found again at a Custom House in Savannah in 1894. The stock was at that time turned over to the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Confederate Veteran’s Association of Savannah, to be sold for the benefit of Confederate veterans.
