Northwest Territorial Mint to Preserve and Grow Legacy of Iconic Minting Company
The world famous Medallic Art Company, whose work in medals over the last century has included that of renowned sculptors such as James Earle Fraser (the Buffalo Nickel), Victor David Brenner (the Lincoln Cent) and Augustus Saint-Gaudens (the “double eagle” coin), has moved into the next chapter of its 106-year-old history.
The legendary company, responsible for reproducing bas-relief masterpieces by American masters of sculpting as well as producing prestigious medals such as the Pulitzer Prize, Congressional Medal of Honor, and inaugural medals for numerous U.S. presidents, has come under the management of Northwest Territorial Mint.
Northwest Territorial Mint, recognized in its own right as one of the finest private mints in the country, will preserve and build upon the legacy and quality of work that has given Medallic Art world-wide acclaim.
Northwest Territorial Mint CEO Ross Hansen was excited to add Medallic Art’s elite artistry and skill to Northwest Territorial Mint’s industry-leading minting business.
“This is a truly a case of the sum being greater than its parts. Combining the knowledge and prestige of Medallic Art with Northwest Territorial Mint’s proven minting expertise will allow us to be the clear choice for customers looking for world-class minted products,” Hansen said.
Northwest Territorial Mint will assume stewardship of Medallic Art’s inventory, archives and its 118,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facilities in Dayton, Nevada. Northwest Territorial Mint’s own high quality commemoratives in silver, gold, military coins, and corporate awards will seamlessly combine with Medallic Art’s tradition of producing peerless art medals. With access to the two companies’ combined offerings — including more than 160,000 square feet of minting facilities and over 200 employees and minting experts — customers will greatly benefit from the unrivaled skill of the new minting operations.
Hansen stressed that existing and future customers looking for products that ensure enduring recognition will gain immediate value from the new relationship. “The resulting capabilities will give our customers a level of quality and selection that will be unrivaled by any other company.” Hansen said.
