NUMISMATIC SOCIETY OF AUCKLAND TEUTENBERG MEDAL MINTAGES

In the June 7, 2009 E-Sylum article about the new book on engraver Anton Teutenberg, Tone Hine wrote: Cresswell, Teutenberg
The companion medal restrike takes a Teutenberg die from an 1897 Jubilee medal originally issued to winners of a military athletic tournament. Using the master die held by NSA, the commemorative restrike produced 45 silver, 45 copper and 7 gold medals each bearing the reverse legend: Numismatic Society of Auckland (Inc.) 1959-2009.


Martin Purdy writes:
While these are the published mintage figures for the anniversary medals, I understand an extra 10 copper were made at the last moment, making the final mintage 7 gold, 45 silver and 55 copper, just to keep the record straight.


Thanks for the update! -Editor
