United States Mint Opens Sales for Bronze Medal Honoring Secretary of the Treasury Jacob J. Lew

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) has opened sales for the bronze medal honoring Secretary of the Treasury Jacob J. Lew.

Struck at the United States Mint at Philadelphia, the three-inch bronze medal (Product Code 17MA) is priced at $39.95. The obverse, designed and engraved by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart, features a portrait of Jacob J. Lew with an American flag in the background and the inscriptions “JACOB J. LEW” and “76TH SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.”

The reverse design, also by Everhart, and engraved by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna, features a depiction of the Statue of Liberty and the Main Building on Ellis Island alongside a quote from Emma Lazarus. The inscriptions read “I LIFT MY LAMP BESIDE THE GOLDEN DOOR” and “EMMA LAZARUS.”

The Treasury Department has a longstanding tradition of striking an official medal for each Secretary of the Treasury. The Mint produces the medal under the general authority of 31 U.S.C. § 5111 (a) (2), which states that the Secretary may prepare and strike “national and other medals” if it does not interfere with regular minting operations. Since the 1890s, the Mint has prepared, struck, and distributed medals for 33 of the 35 Senate-confirmed Secretaries.

Orders are being accepted at http://catalog.usmint.gov and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468), while hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT. To learn more about available shipping options, visit https://www.catalog.usmint.gov/customer-service/shipping.html.

Harvest Moon brings blessings of gold & silver

More affordable options for the popular Moon Panda available now!

Talk about being late to the party! By the time the first Thanksgiving was celebrated 395 years ago in North America, the people of China had been celebrating their own holiday of Thanksgiving–called the Moon Festival–for nearly 3,000 years!

2016-china-1-oz-proof-silver-panda-moon-festival-medal-gem-proof-original-mint-capsule

2016 China 1 oz. Proof Silver Panda – Moon Festival Medal GEM Proof (Original Mint Capsule)

The Moon Festival is the second biggest holiday celebration in China–ranking only behind Chinese New Year in importance and excitement. The Moon Festival is a time for families to gather together, often dining outdoors under the full moon, as they celebrate another year of plenty, blessings, and the love and support of family and friends. Of course, the moon itself has a timeless and universal magic that needs no explanation or translation.

A Spectacular Opportunity

China has issued precious metal Panda coins and proofs for over thirty years. They are among the most popular gold and silver issues in the world. So it may surprise you to learn that–until recently–China had never specifically honored the Moon Festival as part of the China Gold & Silver Panda series. That all changed late last year when a new Moon Festival Panda™ series was launched by the China Mint with a single massive proof: the 2015 Moon Festival Panda Silver Kilo. It quickly became one of the most popular and fastest-selling Panda proofs in history.

But today, the China Mint has made an even more exciting announcement…

JUST RELEASED: 2016 Moon Pandas

After such an overwhelming response from collectors to the debut of the Moon Festival Panda series last year, China made a bold and dramatic decision for 2016. They decided to follow up the single massive 2015 silver kilo with four different 2016 Gold and Silver Moon Festival Panda Proofs–giving eager collectors a much wider range of sizes, metals, and price points to choose from. Be sure to claim your coins today and enjoy MCM’s always free domestic shipping with no minimum.

Both of these classic American symbols are designed in sharp detail and look especially incredible with the proof finish! To the collectors who were unable to purchase the High Relief Gold Liberty coin earlier this year due to budget constraints, the Silver Liberty Medal provides a more affordable opportunity to add this design to their collection.
