Commemorate your visit to Isle Royale 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 experience in America’s great outdoors, this splash-minted National Park medallion will be a timeless keepsake that you will treasure forever.
Located in the northwest corner of Lake Superior, Isle Royale National Park is an adventurers dream, one of the only national parks in the country accessible only by boat or floatplane. As the largest island in Lake Superior, this remote park is part of a string of islands and is home to a thriving wildlife population including substantial numbers of moose and wolves.
The medallion’s obverse of the medallion displays one of the park’s well-known wolves with the date the park was established in 1940. The reverse shows a detailed rendering of a proud moose standing in the water of Lake Superior. 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.
