Here's one more from Jeff Starck
of Coin World, who writes:
The town of Miami, OK, in the northeast part of the state is celebrating its 125th anniversary with a medal. The medal celebrates the
town's connection to Route 66, the high school mascot the Wardogs and the Nine Tribes found in the region, which coordinate as the
Inter-Tribal Council centered in Miami. In addition, the medal references Northeast Oklahoma A&M College.
Thanks. I have a thing for quasquicentennial medals. Here's an excerpt from the article. -Editor
Coins commemorating Miami's 125th birthday celebration are now on sale.
“The coins are a nice addition to the celebration,” said Amanda Davis, executive director of the Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau
(CVB) and director of tourism for the City of Miami.
The CVB helped spearhead an anniversary celebration in March that included a parade, concerts and other activities. “It's a tradition
that we were quickly made aware of when we began planning for the event,” Davis said. “Many Miamians that were present for past
celebrations have stopped at the CVB to show me their collections of the special anniversary coin. It will definitely be a keepsake.”
Cost of the coins are $15 each and are available at the Miami CVB office, 101 North Main.
