This is our 1/2 ounce pure silver Official 2021 Alaska State Medallion in proof-like quality. These medallions are struck just 1 time with our press which helps to keep the cost low but they are still very nice looking. It is just under 1.25 inches in diameter and come packaged in a clear plastic flip with a certificate of authenticity.
The 2021 medallion was designed by Debbie Dubac from Anchorage, AK. She was inspired by our state motto, “North to the Future”. The eagle Is looking forward suggesting that we look forward to a bright future. She included the states flower, the forget-me-knot, to remind everyone to never forget beautiful Alaska.
