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.

Each year we inspect and hand build proof sets, these are sets containing one of each size medallion, from the 1/20 up to the 1oz. proof. (It does not contain the 2 oz. size) Each proof set is contained in a presentation case and includes a certificate of authentication, signed by Alaska's newly elected Governor Mike Dunleavy.
