Commemorate your visit to Canyonlands National Park with this die-struck medallion created by master artisans. Great as a gift, to celebrate a trip or to just hold as a lasting reminder of your journey through America’s great outdoors, this National Parks medallion will capture the Canyonlands experiences meaningful to you in enduring, splash-minted metal.
Located in southern Utah, Canyonlands National Park was formed by the work of the Colorado River, sculpting the sandstone rock into countless numbers of giant canyons, mesas and buttes often colored with earthy red and orange hues. The park is also known for containing ancient pictographs on the canyon walls, made by the ancient Pueblan Indians.
The medallion’s obverse shows one of the park’s many rock arches. The reverse displays a group guiding their raft down the mighty Colorado River. Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and given a beautiful lacquered finished.
Each coin measures 1 1/2 inch (38.1mm) in diameter.
This is an NWTMINT surplus item.
