1976 New York State Gold Bicentennial Medal

Recommended Posts

One of my friends recently inherited a collection of US coins from his father and included were several 1976 Bicentennial medals made by the Medallic Art Company (Danbury, CT). All were brass or silver (except for one marked 18k gold) and were intended to celebrate the New York State American Revolution.


Here are the photos I took of the gold medal:






The medal weighs 21.36 grams with a diameter of 38mm.

This link shows the silver and brass versions but not the gold:




The printed ordering information that came with the medals claims that only 1000 were minted in gold and that the first 250 were given to officials from the original 13 states. As this is #251 it is apparently the first one sold to the general public.


Any additional info would be appreciated, and if anyone owns the Johnson reference could you please look up the gold version. Thanks!
