The Medallic Art Company launched a new website at www.medallic.com, it announced in December.
The firm says its site is designed to better display its 100-plus years of medallic work and to provide ready access for customers and art historians to product categories, galleries, historic slide presentations and custom minting information.
Among the firm’s work are custom medals, institutional chains and maces, stock and collectible medals, specialty items, lapel pins, and spinning medals and plaques. The site’s 10 new galleries feature creations of renowned sculptors such as James Earle Fraser, Victor David Brenner and Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The new website also provides a look at the entire minting process from concept to finished medallion and illustrates the involvement of sculptors, artists, die-makers and production specialists. Highlighted for visitors is the complete film, “The Medal Maker.”
In 2009 the Medallic Art Company came under the stewardship of Northwest Territorial Mint, which moved its minting operations to the Medallic facility in Dayton, Nev.
