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.

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.
