In preparation for its 50th anniversary in 2010, the Kalamazoo Numismatic Club has commissioned a group of medals to mark the occasion.
The club worked with SilverTowne Mint of Winchester, Ind., to design and produce medals in 1-ounce, .999 fine silver, copper and gold-plated copper. Each medal measures 39mm in diameter. Only 250 of the copper and 125 each of the gold-plated copper and silver medals have been minted.
Copper medals are available for $8 each, gold-plated copper for $10 each and silver for $25 each. A set of all three medals in a presentation box costs $50. First class postage and handling for one to three medals is $4. Orders of four or more medals will be sent Priority Mail for $6.50.
Inquiries and orders should be sent to Kalamazoo Numismatic Club, P.O. Box 462, Portage, MI 49081. Checks should be made payable to the Kalamazoo Numismatic Club.
KNC will offer any remaining medals at the door of its Annual Fall Coin Show on Nov. 7.
