hilary clintonThe internationally renowned Liberty Medal, created by Hamilton Jewelers since 2010, has been presented to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in recognition of her lifelong career in public service and her ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of women and girls around the globe.

Established in 1988 to commemorate the bicentennial of the US Constitution, the Liberty Medal is awarded annually to men and women of courage and conviction who strive to secure the blessings of liberty to people around the globe.

Secretary Clinton received the prestigious award during the 25th annual Liberty Medal ceremony on the National Constitution Center’s front lawn in Philadelphia on 10 September.

The live event was hosted by ABC News Anchor and Correspondent Elizabeth Vargas and included a stellar combination of 50 performers, including a performance from The Bright Hope Baptist Community Singers of Philadelphia and the Princeton Girlchoir.

“The Liberty Medal recognizes individuals who have furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds,” said National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen. “Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for ‘We the People’, not just in this country but around the globe.”

“The Liberty Medal is another defining moment in a lifetime of moments for the former Secretary of State and is justly deserved.”

Since 2010, Hamilton Jewelers has produced the Liberty Medal in its workshop, one of several operated by the family-owned firm headquartered in Princeton, NJ.

“It is truly an honor to know that a medal created by our craftsmen is presented to such worthy recipients as Secretary Clinton, and we are proud to be part of this important occasion,” said Hamilton president, Hank B. Siegel.
