2019 Official State of Alaska 

BEAR AND FIREWEED MEDALLION

Alaska Mint proudly presents the 2019 Official State of Alaska Medallion designed by Natalie Treadwell. Natalie is an Alaskan born visual artist working in the mediums of oil paint, film photography, and natural squid and octopus ink. Her inspiration derives from a passion to share her Arctic perspective and the way of life in the north with those in the world who have not had the opportunity to see the beauty that the final frontier offers. She also studies GIS and cartography with aspirations to better our spatial understanding of the remote reaches of the north, specifically in aiding the efforts to map the Arctic Ocean. 

The design for the 2019 Alaska state coin is a representation of the vibrant ecosystem present in Alaska showing how nutrients are passed though different species. Alaska has one of the most interconnected and expansive natural systems left in the world and the coin design is used to highlight the ways in which our animals and natural plants interact with one another to create the Alaskan wilderness.

The Official State of Alaska Medallion is minted in bronze, pure silver, pure gold, and gold relief (silver medallion with 24kt. gold plating on part of the image).  The edge of the 1 oz. silver and gold relief medallions are stamped with their purity .999 fine silver, our hallmark Alaska Mint, and a serial number.  The “proof-like” version is minted in 1 oz. pure silver and has a reeded edge with a matte-finish on both sides.  The silver medallions are minted in 1/20 oz., 1/10 oz., ¼ oz., ½ oz., 1 oz. and 2 oz. weights. The gold medallions are minted in 1/20 oz., 1/10 oz., ¼ oz., ½ oz., 1 oz. and 3 oz. weights and are packaged individually or in proof sets.

This "Alaska Size" medallion is made of 2 oz. pure silver with 24k gold accents on the front, it is about 2 inches across, and comes packaged in an airtite container and gift box.
