1995 Alaska Mint Silver Medallion Proof Set Puffin coin

!995 Official Alaska State Proof Medallion set minted from Alaska-mined silver by the Alaska Mint. Set is boxed in presentation case just like the US Mint Prestige sets. T are 4 Medallions, One-ounce, One-half Ounce, One-quarter Ounce and One-tenth Troy ounce each. The set is housed in a dark blue velvet display box and a gold-embossed protective box outside that.

Debra Dubac designed the 1995 Official Alaska Medallion because of how happy they made her watching them. The Alaska Mint design is selected each year by the Alaska Council on the Arts from a wide variety of artists and designs.

Proof medallions are struck twice on highly polished dies under more pressure than typical business strikes. This ensures frosty highlights and mirror-like fields. The Alaska Mint is located in downtown Anchorage and has the press staged right in front of a large picture window so folks can see the medallions being struck.

The One Ounce medallion in this set is numbered but cannot be read in the presentation case. T is no reserve and the starting price is ridiculously low.
