About Our Family Business

My wife Michele and I are the owners and operators of the Alaska Mint. I was 4 years old when my parents moved our family to Alaska from Colorado. They were young and ambitious. My Dad worked as a “roughneck” on oil platforms and they had saved up enough money to start a small jewelry shop. My brothers, sisters and I have grown up in the jewelry business and most of us specialize in a different aspect of it.

Originally, we produced the art work and had our medallions manufactured outside of Alaska. In 1990, we started acquiring and assembling the equipment to mint silver and gold medallions right here in Anchorage. We started out with 1 coin design. We now have thousands of dies. All of our medallions are struck  in our location on 4th Avenue in downtown Anchorage. Our medallions are detailed reproductions of original sculptures. Many have a limited mintage and are highly collectible.

We buy raw gold from placer miners and gold bearing quartz that is mined deep underground. From these natural elements, we fashion beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry that is a valuable addition to any collection. While the pieces are rare, they are surprisingly affordable. The items available in our store are either made in our shop, or by one of our longtime jewelers. We are proud of our company history and look forward to share the Alaskan experience through the Alaska Mint.

Our two sons, Gunnar and Hunter,  are now working with us. They are a great addition to our creative team.
