The 2017 Official State Medallion of Alaska
The Susitna Eagle!
OUR MEDALLIONS ARE BLOCKS OF LOW SERIAL NUMBERS (some of the first off the press!). If you had an assigned serial number last year you will receive the same number(s) for the 2017 Susitna Eagle (providing demand is sufficient and you renew your number by Nov 1, 2016). All new orders will receive the lowest serial number available.

Crystelle Masters of Anchorage submitted the winning design for the 2017 Official State Medallion.
This year's image is a bald eagle catching a fish in front of Mount Susitna (The Sleeping Lady) across Cook Inlet from Anchorage. High on the medallion is the Big Dipper representing our famous state flag.
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. With each medallion ordered we add an information sheet about Eagles, Mount Susitna and the Alaska State Flag.
