The private Lasqueti Mint has introduced its latest medal produced for Mammoth Tusk Gold Inc. of the Yukon.
The proof medal is composed of one ounce .9999 fine gold. It has a diameter of 29.9mm. The obverse features a sourdough gold panner. It lists the date ?2008? and the legend ?PURE KLONDIKE GOLD.? The reverse is an artistic rendering of a woolly mammoth by mint engraver Ray Lipovsky. It also has the legend ?YUKON? and the required ?1 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.? It also bears the Lasqueti Mint mark.
The medals will be packaged in handmade wooden boxes with a mammoth tusk cabochon inlaid in the top. They are produced by Wildwood Works of Lasqueti Island. The medals will be accompanied by a certificate from the Lasqueti Mint.
Mammoth Tusk Gold has established a chain of custody that guarantees that the gold in these medals comes from the environmental award-winning Ross Mine. It is a placer mine on Dominion Creek in the Klondike region of the Yukon. The environmental and social standards held by Mammoth Tusk Gold are documented by the chain of custody, as well as support from the Yukon government.
This project sets a new standard for gold production and supply in North America. Only mines that abide by the strict environmental and social guidelines of Klondike placer mine regulations will be considered to be granted the ?Mammoth Gold? label.
The maximum 250 proof medal run is available for $1,650 each. To order, write Mammoth Tusk Gold Inc., Attn: Brooke McLean, 30 Laberge Road, Whitehorse, YT, Y1A 5Y9, Canada. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, call (867) 668-7807, or fax (867) 668-7762.
