Emmetsburg News

Coinciding with the annual St. Patrick's Celebration is the release of the 2017 Robert Emmet Medallion.

There are a limited number of medallions available at St. Patrick Association's Irish Gift Shop located on the corner of 10th and Broadway, Emmetsburg.

The coin shows the young Robert Emmet pointing to freedom with the words: Emmetsburg, Iowa, Irish Patriot 1778-1803, Robert Emmet, March 2017. This year, rather than Stars and Shamrocks, the coin is imprnited with five Shamrocks.

The Shamrocks signify the five islands at Five Island Lake as well as five decades of celebrating St. Patrick's Day in Emmetsburg.

The reverse side of the coin is identical to previous medallions, featuring the crossed flags of Ireland and the United States, depicting the unity between the two countries.
