I know I posted these somewhere but cant find it. So, I thought to post my newest one I picked up along with the hodgepodge
image collection of what I have. I'm still looking to see what the mintages are and what years they were made.
If anyone has info or medals to post, lets see them.....


I need to find them as they are packed up and image each one for my records.

    Define "medals". They still make dated 1 oz silver rounds.

    Many of these were marketed with a mintage limit of just 250, 1000, or 2500 pieces, however, in some years orders were less than the mintage limit and thus the true sales quantity is lower. I don’t belive that they ever struck any given type an additional time - they canceled the dated dies after the year’s minting was completed - but the firm did keep back issues and offered them for sale for years after original production. I am not sure what the firm did with excess, unsold inventory.

    This is an underrated series and it includes some amazing designs. Frank Gasparro had quite the artistic space to do as he pleased with many of these issues and as a result, you have some exceptional medallic art. The “America” design is one of my favorite modern medals and I have yet to procure one!

    Not only was the engraving exceptional, so was the minting. These are frosty, CAM and DCAM silver medals, and you can tell that great care was taken in the actual production of these.

    @coinsarefun... Those are beautiful medals Stef. I have not collected medals, though I think I have a couple I acquired casually, due to theme or art. Nothing to compare to yours though. Cheers, RickO
