The Bay Cities Coin Club of California is celebrating its January merger with the Culver City, Calif., Coin Club with a medal designed by BCCC Treasurer George Gill.
The medal obverse carries the club’s logo, which features the Walking Liberty design used on U.S. half dollars minted from 1916 to 1947. The setting sun bears a portion of the Culver City logo on it, which represents the termination of the CCCC.
The reverse depicts a map of the southern portion of the Los Angeles area and its freeway system. The Los Angeles International Airport is indicated with the letters “LAX” and there is a star indicating the location of the club’s meeting place in El Segundo. Dashed lines radiating from the star encompass the bay cities – El Segundo south to Long Beach. Around the diameter are 10 stars with “BCCC” at the top. At the bottom are club meeting details.
A bright copper version and golden bronze version of the medal are available for $7 each. A one-ounce .999 fine silver version is priced at $28. A discounted price of $40 applies when all three medals are purchased at the same time.
