Ferris High School. Spokane, WA – Sponsored Play, Ham on Regal

Following tradition, Kevin Arbanas was looking for a token of appreciation for all those involved with Ferris High School’s annual production of the play, Ham on Regal. And as a retired Army pilot, he was also familiar with military challenge tradition. He came to us to help him create a memorable piece to blend the two practices. We created two versions of a single design, one in antique bronze with no color and the other in antique nickel with color.

Kevin was so happy with the result, he gave away every coin, saving the last one as a thank-you gift for his sales rep on the project, Russ Wilson.

The Touchstone

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?A touchstone is a small tablet of dark stone such as fieldstone, slate or lydite, used for probing of precious metal alloys. It has a finely grained surface on which soft metals leave a visible trace. Because it aided in the identification of gold and silver, the touchstone revolutionized the concept of money. Use of the touchstone in Ancient Greece and Anatolia dates to circa 500 BC. The fourth century philosopher Theophrastus in the tract de lapidibus (On Stones) described the testing of gold by fire or by the touchstone.
