100% of Profits from Sale of Zelensky Medals will be Contributed to Help Ukrainians in Their Homeland and as Refugees

100% of the profits from the sale of art medals honoring Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky will be contributed to organizations helping Ukrainians in their homeland and as refugees.

Jim Licaretz, designer of these impressive 3 1/2-inch diameter, very high relief medals is a former sculptor-engraver at the U.S. Mint. Licaretz was motivated to honor the heroic President of Ukraine, just as he commemorated other heroes in the past — such as civil rights leader John Lewis and World War II flying ace Rosie Rosenthal. The new medals feature a bold portrait of Zelensky, along with his words Our truth is that this is our land and the state seal of Ukraine.

Licaretz created the original model in resin using a 3-D printer. He then made a mold and cast medals in bonded bronze, each of which Licaretz then hand finished.

No more than 199 Zelensky commemorative medals will be issued, each accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a stand so that it can be proudly exhibited in a home or office. The cost is $150 plus $15 per order for shipping, with a limit of 3 medals per order. If all medals are sold, a contribution of about $15,000 will be made to help the Ukrainian victims of Russian aggression.

To order, send payment to the non-profit Jewish-American Hall of Fame, 5189 Jeffdale Ave., Woodland Hills, CA 91364, or call 818-225-1348, or pay with PayPal using email address of directorjahf@yahoo.com.
