This Nevada State Seal Coin honors the rich heritage and legacy of the State of Nevada and salutes her people’s hardworking, entrepreneurial spirit .
Despite the largely desert and semiarid land, the people of the great State of Nevada have built a remarkable society out of nothing. While abundant natural resources may have defined the State early on, it’s the tourists, who come to see the wonders Nevadans have built, who drive the economy today with manufacturing and mining playing a major supporting role. Now, Nevada stands as a beacon of freedom for all peoples.
Minted in the USA from solid bronze, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin is dedicated to the pioneering spirit and indomitable will of the people of Nevada. The obverse features the official seal of the State of Nevada which depicts an homage to the state’s mining heritage. The reverse displays a laurel wreath, the traditional symbol of victors and champions, along with a space available for engraving.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
