( Carson City, NV ) – Nevada has released the second of four official medallions to mark the Silver State’s 150th anniversary year.

The latest features a miner with a pick ax.

Nevada Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki, who is also chairman of the Nevada 150 Commission Chairman, says “I am thrilled to welcome Wells Fargo as the newest sponsor of our celebration; Nevada and Wells Fargo have an incredible and unique shared history.”

He adds:  “The design of the second medallion, depicting a miner, truly captures the history and impact mining has had on or state.”

 

A one-ounce silver medallion is about 100-dollars, or you can choose a copper one for 15-bucks.  You can order the special coins by clicking on the State Legislature’s website at leg.state.nv.us.
