What are these medals? 250th anniversary of the opening of Russian America


Recommended Posts

I think these were issued as they are cost less to the ones in preciuos metals

By my reading it's the 250th anniversary of "Russian America" (i.e., Alaska) and there is a 1741 date on the medals. So 1991 would be the best guess (I suppose they could have been issued a year or two early). On the other hand one of the coins sports a 1732 date, and another says 1778, so I could be totally off base with this.


Edit: Well DUH from the title you figured all that out already. Sorry.
