This is our 1 oz. pure silver Official 2021 Alaska State Medallion in proof-like quality. These medallions are struck with specially prepared sandblasted dies that give them a satin finish. This allows us to mint them quickly and sell for a great price. Just a few dollars above the price of silver. The nice thing about this surface is that they can be handled without leaving finger prints, perfect for stacking! They come packaged in a plastic flip with a certificate of authenticity.
The 2021 medallion was designed by Debbie Dubac from Anchorage, AK. She was inspired by Alaska’s state motto, “North to the Future”. The eagle Is looking forward suggesting that we look forward to a bright future. She included the state flower, the forget-me-knot, to remind everyone to never forget beautiful Alaska.
These medallions are also available in bronze, 1 oz .999 fine silver, 1 oz single gold relief (24k plating on part of the silver coin) and 1 oz. double gold relief (24k gold plating on both sides). The 1 oz medallion is similar in size to a silver dollar. The 2 oz medallion is 2 inches in diameter. They are packaged in an airtight container and handsome gift box. The reverse has the Seal of the State of Alaska. The edge of the 1 oz. silver proof and gold relief medallions are stamped with their purity .999 fine silver, our hallmark, Alaska Mint and a serial number.
