This Official California Bicentennial Medallion Collection features a 7.5"x9.25" folder enclosing a removable plastic frame with four silver medallions mounted for display (the frame is held in place by velcro dots). These were issued by the American Revolution Bicentennial Commission of California. Each of the 4 medals is slightly larger in diameter than a US silver dollar and is stamped STERLING on the upper plain edge. The First Issue medallion is dated 1973 on the back and reads HISTORIC EVENTS CALIFORNIA on the front. The Second Issue is from 1974 has a miner panning gold under 200 and THE GOLDEN STATE. The Third is from 1975 and depicts a Pony Express rider. The Fourth is from 1976 and depicts John Muir and Half Dome in Yosemite along with CONSERVATION PIONEER CALIFORNIA.
Each medal is slightly larger in diameter and has a higher silver content than a US 90% silver dollar - I couldn’t see a way to remove one without damaging the holder so I cannot give an exact weight. The medallions are slightly toned on the rear but otherwise in Very Good condition. The holder shows some wear/soil. From a non-smoking home.
