This unique souvenir medallion signifies the beginning of the iconic German Texas town of Fredericksburg. On one side is the emblem of its 175th anniversary celebrated 2021-22. In the logo center is the representation of the Vereins Kirche or society church which was the first important structure in Fredericksburg. On the flip side, shows the emblem of the Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas or "Verein zum Schutz deutscher Einwanderer in Texas." While the society failed to fully support the German immigrants, the leadership of its second commissioner John O. Meusebach resulted in firmly establishing a German foothold in Texas and the establishment of our beautiful Fredericksburg.
