Reverse: PVBLIC·OFFICE / A·PVBLIC·TRVST. / ⁕ PRESIDENT ⁕ / MDCCCLXXXV ★ MDCCCLXXXXIII - A seated female figure representing Democracy, her face turned upward as if reading the words excerpted from Cleveland's October 25, 1881, speech accepting nomination for Mayor of Buffalo. Democracy holds a starred sphere in her left hand, representing the states in the Union, and supports in her right hand the tables of the law. The building to the left is suggestive of public office, while the oak trees represent the peace and shelter of retired life; the monumental column surmounted by an eagle in the background is symbolic of force and alertness; below left, signed J·E·ROINÉ.
