2006 IASAC silver medal.
In 2006, the IASAC (International Association of Silver Art Collectors) conducted a design contest for their annual silver medal. The designs are typically related to the host city of the annual IASAC convention, which is Tucson Arizona for 2006. I entered the design below and it was chosen as the winning design. Although I had already sculpted the design in 3D, I was not able to add my designer's initials or submit the sculpture for use in making the dies. The dies were made by a 3rd party using my rendering (as shown below) as a guide.
An Arizona desert scene with cactus and a Gila Monster. The rim has 21 teeth signifying the 21st year of IASAC.The reverse side (not shown) carries the standard IASAC logo.
120 were struck in brass with an antiqued finished. These have a generic engraveable reverse.
120 were struck in 999 pure silver (one troy ounce) with a proof-like finish. These have a reverse showing the IASAC logo and an individual serial number.
40 were issued in 999 pure silver (one troy ounce) with an enameled proof-like finish. These have a reverse showing the IASAC logo and an individual serial number.
