More About This Limited Edition Medallion
Honoring Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, 150 years of statehood, Comstock Mining has minted this limited-edition medallion struck from one troy ounce of pure (.9999) Comstock silver. This is the first time since the U.S. Mint in Carson City closed in 1893, that pure Comstock silver has been minted as a substantial authentic medallion. It is mined safely and responsibly from the famed Comstock under the highest environmental standards. Each medallion is an expression of the deep heritage of the great Comstock Lode, famous for its enormous wealth, hastening statehood for Nevada in 1864 and shaping mining practices worldwide for over six decades.
Comstock Mining is proud to offer this symbol of our national legacy and the State’s mining heritage, as the company looks to the future while honoring and celebrating our past. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this item will go directly to the Comstock Foundation for History and Culture for historic preservation and restoration projects on the Comstock.
This medallion harkens back to Nevada’s roots. Its obverse portrays significant aspects of Gold Hill during the 1870s, the pinnacle of the Comstock’s prominence. The reverse depicts the Upper Yellow Jacket Hoist and Ore Chute in Gold Hill, a resource that was near collapse before the expertise and efforts of the Comstock Foundation for History & Culture rescued the treasured resource.
We are proud to share it with you, with our compliments.
