Feb. 10 marks the 75th anniversary of The Northwest Coin Club of Minneapolis, Minn., and it has produced four medals to commemorate the milestone.
For the past 75 years the club, one of the oldest in the nation, has nurtured, educated and supported coin collectors throughout the Twin Cities area and beyond, it says.
The one-ounce silver medal is made of .999 fine silver with a deep mirror proof-like cameo finish, reeded edge and coin turn striking.
Also available are one-ounce copper, one-ounce bronze and an aluminum version of the medal.
Three-medal sets are made of the silver, copper and bronze medals in AirTite capsules within a blue velvet steel holder. The aluminum medal is not housed in any container.
The club is offering these sets and individual medals to collectors.
A total of 50 silver medals, individually and in sets, are available on a first come, first served basis. There is no limit on the other medals.
Prices are $40 for the three-medal set, $30 for the silver medal, $4 each for the copper and bronze medals, and $1 for the aluminum medal. All prices include shipping.
