Colleges, universities and educational institutions across the United States are investing in high-quality collegiate medallions to mark accomplishments and special events with a touch of class. Collegiate medallions from Medalcraft Mint can feature images ranging from landmarks and buildings to significant individuals, official seals and even mascots. These have become an increasingly popular choice as institutions look beyond certificates, plaques and other traditional forms of acknowledgement.

“We are finding that institutions value collegiate medallions because they allow schools to express appreciation or congratulations in ways that recipients will treasure,” said Jerry Moran, owner and chief executive officer of Medalcraft Mint, a premium manufacturer of items made in the USA ranging from custom lapel pins to specialty recognition awards. “Our in-house artists can design medallions as simple as 2-D wording up to 3-D portraits.”

Collegiate Medallions of Premium Quality

Institutions of higher education, high schools, preparatory schools, athletic clubs and other organizations count on Medalcraft Mint’s expertise for eye-catching collegiate medallions. The company’s die-striking process features highly skilled craftsmen who hand-sculpt or engrave customer-approved designs into a steel die block.

The die-striking process involves pressing material into a die cavity to make an exact impression of the crafted image. Medalcraft Mint uses die striking in the collegiate medallion production process because it creates superior images and provides an overall better product than cast pieces.

“We take direction from our clients in terms of image and wording requests, and our in-house manufacturing capabilities give us complete control over quality,” Moran said. “Our customer service team also is available to create unique packaging options for that extra-special finishing touch.”

Medalcraft Mint has been a Wisconsin-based company since its founding in 1948.
