A beautiful medal! -Editor
The Chicago Coin Club announces the release of a series of Medals celebrating the clubs 100th Anniversary. Weighing in at approx. 6 - 13 ounces
depending on the which source metal. The series of 100th anniversary medals consists of four different medals of the same design all sized 3-1/4" x
2-7/16" x 1/4"
The medal design is a bi-directional Rotated Dies (ROT) oval medal with a landscape format obverse image of the Chicago's Clarence F. Buckingham
fountain in Chicago's Grant Park and a portrait format reverse image of the famous Chicago Water Tower in downtown Chicago that survived the Great
Fire of 1871 that is rotated 90° from the obverse. The obverse also contains the inscription "Chicago Coin Club, 1919 – 2019, A century of sharing
numismatic knowledge." This combination of source metals, unusual die orientation and choice of iconic Chicago images marries up to create a
beautiful 100th anniversary club medal that truly represents Chicago and adds to the club's long history of celebratory medals.
