Third Sesquicentennial Medallion Unveiled
The Nevada 150 Commission has unveiled its latest commemorative medallion, and it features some of the coolest landmarks in the state as voted on by local schools. Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki announced the winning design, which elementary students from more than 200 classes across Nevada voted on.
The medallion, available in copper and silver, features Reno’s famous arch, Wendover Will, and the iconic Las Vegas sign.
You can buy the newest medallion, third in a series of four, starting May 27. Each 1-ounce medallion is made from pure Nevada silver from the Coeur Rochester Mine and is $100.50. The same medallion in Nevada copper, donated by Newmont Mining from its Phoenix mine, is $15.
Orders for the sesquicentennial medallions can be made through the Legislative Gift Shop (LGS) website by visiting and clicking on **NEW ITEMS** under the gift shop button, or in person at the LGS, 401 South Carson St., Carson City. Wells Fargo is the official sponsor of the commemorative medallions.
