Commemorate your visit to Death Valley 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 splash-minted National Parks medallion will be a timeless keepsake that you will enjoy forever.
Located in the desert of Southern California, Death Valley National Park is one of the hottest and driest places on the surface of Earth – averaging well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer. Resting 282 feet below sea level, this striking and oftentimes beautiful landscape is home to a surprisingly diverse collection of plants and wildlife who test their limits in one of nature’s most intense furnaces.
The medallion’s obverse displays the view from the park’s Zabriskie Point. The reverse shows the park’s plentiful plant, the Beavertail Cactus and date the park was founded. 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.
