Commemorate your visit to Capitol Reef 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 Capitol Reef experiences meaningful to you in enduring, splash-minted metal.
Found in southern-central Utah, Capitol Reef National Park is part of the Waterpocket Fold – a geologic landform that’s part of a 100-mile long pleat in the earth’s crust of a ridge of limestone that was once in the ocean. The park is located in a particularly rugged and spectacular area and consists of numerous sandstone cliffs and domes that look similar to the U.S. Capitol Building.
The medallion’s obverse shows the park’s famed dome-like rock structures and the date the park was established. The reverse displays the park’s famous Native American petroglyphs. Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy and given a beautiful lacquered finished.
Make sure you see all of our 65 eye-catching National Park medallions. Choose the one with special meaning to you or collect them all and commemorate your journeys in the lush woods, bold deserts, deep waters, and dazzling summits found throughout America’s National Park System.
Each coin measures 1 1/2 inch (38.1mm) in diameter.
