North York club unveils 60-year medal

To mark its 60th anniversary this year, the North York Coin Club (NYCC) is striking a commemorative medal in bronze and .999 pure silver.

Bronze medals will be presented for free to each existing NYCC member (in good standing and with dues paid) as early in the year as production allows. For a limited time, both the bronze and silver medals will also be offered via an advance subscription ($15 for bronze and $60 for silver).

The medals are struck by the private Mississauga Mint, which also produced the club’s 50th-anniversary medal in 2010 and Canada 150 medal in 2017.

The obverse of the 60th-anniversary medal features a common design – first used on the club’s founding medal and now as insignia appearing on its letterhead and newsletter masthead – of the figure of justice as it appears on 1822 Lesslie & Sons twopenny token.

The reverse depicts the arms of the Township of North York, which was also used on the club’s founding medal. It includes a shield with a sheaf of grain and scales surmounted by a beaver on crown plus a border of maple leaves. Accompanying the motto “Progress with Economy” are the words “Diamond Jubilee” and the date “2020.”

There will be no further strikes using this die combination, according to the club.
