Commemorate your visit to Sequoia 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 Parks medallion will be a timeless keepsake that you will treasure forever.
Located in California’s southern Sierra Nevada mountain range, Sequoia National Park is home to the some of the most awe-inspiring trees in the world. Visitors who walk among the Sequoia groves are truly in the presence of giants, especially when they come face to face with the 275-foot General Sherman Sequoia – one of the largest trees on earth. The second-oldest U.S. national park, the park is a high-country wonderland that includes dazzling mountain vistas, lush old-growth forests and some of the highest peaks in the contiguous U.S.
The medallion’s obverse shows the magnificent Sequoias found throughout the park and the date the park was established in 1890. The reverse shows park regulars — a black bear with her cubs. 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.
