Walrus Medallion

Walrus Medallion


You cannot mistake the walrus with those magnificent tusks!  This beautiful design by Alaskan artist Christy Matthews shows the walrus sunning himself on an ice flow with another in the water behind him and the midnight sun shining in the background. We minted this Walrus obverse with the State Seal of Alaska on the reverse for the Lt. Governors Office in 2006 as a flipping coin to decide the winner of a race in Western Alaska that had ended in a tie.

It is 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. They are packaged in an airtight container and handsome gift box. The reverse has our Land of the Midnight Sun design. If you choose to have your medallion engraved, the reverse will be blank and your personalized message will be engraved.
