Commemorate your visit to Zion 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 southwestern Utah, Zion National Park is a Mecca for rock climbing and spelunking enthusiasts. Renowned for its canyons and cliffs, the park’s deep red sandstone formations, polished extraordinarily smooth by centuries of water, astound visitors who wander among them. Formations called “slot canyons,” dot the park including the famous “Subway.” These passageways are formed by water sluicing through the sandstone and leave behind amazing rock cauldrons and abstract curves.
The medallion’s obverse shows one of the mighty sandstone cliffs with the date 1919. The reverse shows a red-tailed hawk, native hunters in the region. 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.
