Mushing Around Alaska - It is unknown when the first sled dog race was held. Humans have domesticated dogs for thousands of years, and sled dogs have been used for transportation in Arctic areas for almost as long. The first sled dog race to feature a codified set of rules was the All Alaska Sweepstakes which first took place in 1908. This medallion features a long distance dog team running around the outer edge of the coin with a map of Alaska and Totemic pattern inside. This medallion is minted in 1 oz .999 fine silver.

Alaska Gold Panner 2023 - Gold mining has played an important role in Alaska’s history and continues to be a significant industry in the state. The Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1800s brought thousands of prospectors to Alaska in search of fortune, and many of them struck it rich. Gold mining in Alaska is not only an important economic activity but also a cultural and historical legacy of the state. This medallion is available in 1 oz double gold relief (24k gold plating on both sides).

Bull Moose - This medallion features a magnificent bull moose in an Alaskan landscape. Bull moose are a common sight in Alaska, especially in the boreal forests and tundra regions of the state. This medallion is available in golden bronze.

Alaska State Quarter Replica - Governor Sarah Palin had her news conference to release the official design for Alaska’s Statehood Quarter at the Alaska Mint in early 2008. There were several great designs to choose from. She had a “children’s vote”, and this winning design of a Kodiak grizzly bear was chosen. Available in 1 oz double gold relief (24k gold plating on both sides).
