MOFFATT & CO. REACHES AGREEMENT TO PRODUCE GALLERY MINT PRODUCTS

[Timothy Grat of Moffatt & Co. forwarded a press release
this week about the Moffatt agreement to strike U.S. coin
reproductions from the dies of the former Gallery Mint.
Here are some excerpts. -Editor]

Moffatt & Co. Extreme Custom Minting of Eureka Springs, AR.
has announced that they have reached a manufacturing agreement
with Martin Roenigk of Eureka Springs, the new owner of the
Gallery Mintís dies used to produce the line of Gallery Mint
US coin reproductions. Mr. Roenigk purchased the rights,
dies, and most of the antique minting equipment from surviving
Gallery Mint owner Ron Landis in early January.

Through this exclusive agreement Moffatt & Co. will be
producing most Gallery Mint products. This agreement will
also allow Moffatt & Co. to utilize design elements of these
classic US coin replicas so that professional numismatists,
and numismatic clubs and organizations can also create
custom coins and medals with these original Gallery Mint
classic US coin designs.

Scheduled for immediate production is a previously unreleased,
Ron Landis engraved, 1652 Massachusetts Pine Tree Three-pence.
Soon to follow will be the Gobrecht Dollar, with main design
devices sculpted by former US Mint artist Thomas Rogers, also
known as the sculptor for the reverse of the Sacajawea dollar,
the Massachusetts, Maryland, and South Carolina state quarters,
as well as many other collectable commemorative coins,
Congressional and U.S. Mint medals.

For further information please contact Moffatt & Co. toll free
at 866-530-MINT (6468), sales@moffattandco.com, or www.moffattandco.com.

[But how will the Moffatt restrikes be distinguished from
the original Gallery Mint strikings?  The investment buyers
made in limited-edition Gallery Mint products could be
jeopardized if the original dies are used to make
indistinguishable restrikes.  -Editor]
