Carson City, Nevada – Large Medallion – Silver Plated

$49.99

Carson City is named for the famous frontiersman and scout Christopher “Kit” Carson. During his 1843-1844 expedition, John C. Fremont had named Carson City’s nearby river for Kit Carson, Fremont’s scout. Pioneer Abraham Curry arrived in Eagle Valley in 1858 and soon thereafter surveyed and plotted a town site.

Minted in an antique, patina finish, this medallion is dedicated to the pioneering spirit and indomitable will of the people of Nevada. The obverse features the Kit Carson on horseback boldly riding into the frontier, with the city’s motto encircling:

Proud of its past, confident of its future

The reverse features a highly detailed 3D rendering of the Capitol Dome, a major Carson City landmark, and is encircled by elements of its proud western heritage: the V&T Railroad and Pony Express. The founding year of 1858 is highlighted, making this an item that can be held and gifted far into the future.

Struck with a deep-relief, this solid brass medallion is 2.5 inches in diameter, 4.3mm thick, and weighs 4.8oz, and is plated in Silver.

Each medallion comes with a museum quality presentation leatherette box. The exterior is etched with the State of Nevada, showing the starred location of Carson City, with elements of the State flag, reading BATTLE BORN above. The interior puff is stamped with gold foil, and reads “Carson City – Nevada’s Capital” and also features a silhouette of the Capitol Dome. The medal itself is securely fit in a custom velvet well, and also includes a wood stand, perfect for putting the medallion on display.
