Hot Topic: Plating to Save Money

The State University of New York sought to make a very distinguished medal honoring "Distinguished Service Professor." Made as a 3 inch medal, Northwest Territorial Mint worked out a cost effective answer that saved a significant sum over minting in pure silver. These medallions were minted in copper, then given nickel plating, then selectively plated in gold, resulting in a very handsome medal.

Northwest Territorial Mint: In The News

Electrum

Coins from ElectrumThe earliest known coins were struck in Lydia and Ionia (modern western Turkey) from electrum, a naturally occurring alloy of gold and silver. Each coin blank was cast to a predetermined weight. Then the blank was heated to a malleable temperature and struck with a hammer between two engraved dies. These archaic coins usually depict a symbol of the city or ruler on the obverse and a crude punch mark on the reverse. They were the world's first true coins because they were composed of a scarce metal, of a consistent weight, and guaranteed by a government.
