“Even veteran Fiesta hagglers won’t be able to collect this 112-year-old, recently resurfaced medal San Antonio historians believe is the genesis in the event’s history of pinable flair…”
But, you can help support the Coppini Academy by purchasing a replica medal for a tax-deductible donation. Stop by the office during the weeks of Fiesta to collect yours!
“Coppini was a leader of the Knights of Omala (Alamo spelled backward,) a group consisting of “up-and-coming-men of San Antonio,” according to San Antonio Express-News archives…Coppini and his organization were instrumental in the early years of Fiesta, which was established in 1891 and then known as the San Antonio Spring Carnival. The medal was created during the group’s inaugural year.”
