Orders for the second of four commemorative medallions marking Nevada’s 150th birthday begin Feb. 10 through the Nevada Legislative Gift Shop (LGS).

“The design of the second medallion, depicting a miner, truly captures the history and impact mining has had on or state,”  said Lt. Governor and Nevada 150 Commission Chairman, Brian Krolicki.

Each one-ounce collector’s medallion is made from pure Nevada silver from the Coeur Mine in Rochester, Nev. on the historic Coin Press No. 1 at the Nevada State Museum.  Depicting a Nevada miner on the front side and the Nevada Sesquicentennial logo on the back side, the silver medallion is available to the public at $100.50 each.  The copper medallions have the same design as the silver medallions and are available for purchase at $15 each.

Orders for the medallions may be made online at https://www.leg.state.nv.us/app/lcbstore/a/default.aspx or in person at the LGS, located at 401 South Carson St., Carson City.
