Welcome to Alaska Medallions!
Official site of The Alaska Medallion Newsletter
*One Ounce Silver Proof Medallions*
SUMMER UPDATE… ...PLEASE READ!
Once again we will be mining in Alaska's Interior this summer. Starting May 1st this site will not accept orders. We will re-open and announce the 2016 Official Alaska Medallion when we return in September. Until then, explore and read about these beautiful medallions. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we thank you for your understanding.
May your gold pan be forever lined with the yellow metal!
Alaska's Official State Medallion for 2015 is…
The Polar Bear Family!
The winning design for 2015 was submitted by Steve Cross of Fairbanks and it features an adult polar bear surrounded by three cubs (scroll down). It is quite different from past designs but continues the tradition of detailed engraving in the Official State Series.
The 2015 Polar Bear Family is currently in production and should final mintage turn out to be anything like the 2013 Ptarmigan (only 1,820 one ounce proofs were made), 2015 will be another low mintage, collectable year for Alaska State Medallion enthusiasts.
Whether you are looking for a rare medallion investment, a keepsake memory of an Alaskan vacation or a gift for someone tough to please; the Official State Medallions of Alaska are sure to bring smiles to faces for many years.
Meticulously handcrafted of .999 Alaska mined silver these one-ounce rounds are individually serial numbered and limited in edition. The designs change yearly and back issue pieces have shown surprising appreciation values (just check out the back issue medallions to the left!).
There is plenty to look at here… the medallion series has been ongoing in State since 1992. They are sanctioned by the Alaska State Legislature and designs are by Alaskan artists depicting Alaska wildlife. We hope you enjoy browsing and we hope you will allow us to help you bring Alaska silver into your home.
