Most of you visiting this page are familiar with Alaska State Medallions. You will find it interesting the 2015 Polar Bear Family does not have the usual "A" mintmark. The only other year the "A" was omitted was on the 1993 Wolf

The one-ounce Official Alaska State Medallion Proof should be the first medallion in any Alaska collection. It is made of .999 fine silver mined in the State of Alaska and minted under State Statute: 44.09.017. Each medallion is rim stamped with an individual serial number and production is limited to demand through the year of issue. They come encased in an air tight holder with a velvet presentation box and information card. We add an information sheet about polar bears in Alaska with each medallion ordered.
