Graduation maces provide a classic link to history

Medalcraft Mint graduation macesMedalcraft Mint produces these ornate staffs here in the USA

The rich history of maces conjures up graphic images of battles during the Middle Ages. The transition from a utilitarian use into a symbol of authority and dignity used in high-level ceremonies, brings us to the classic symbolism we know today in events such as higher education graduations. Medalcraft Mint is at the forefront of modern design and production of graduation maces Made in America for educational customers.

In an era when international supply chain challenges are adding costs and delivery uncertainty, our ability to complete every aspect of production for graduation maces in our Green Bay, Wisconsin, facility makes for even greater value. One thing that hasn’t changed is our team’s commitment to creating graduation maces that stand the test of time.

Graduation maces lead the commencement ceremony procession of administrative and academic leaders into the event space. A mace bearer carries the staff and places it in a stand at the front of the room, signifying the importance of the event.

Graduation maces are a multi-part symbol of excellence

Collegiate medals, chains of office, and graduation maces all benefit from refreshed design efforts on occasion. While some colleges and universities have had graduation maces for decades, others are new to the tradition and are ordering these ceremonial assets for the first time.

The staff component of graduation maces gets the most attention in the overall package, as it should, but it is only part of a larger package that typically includes a handsome base and stand. Made of high-quality wood, the staff features attractive, die-struck medals that carry imagery and verbiage special to the institution.

The popularity of these assets speaks to the effectiveness of symbolism as educational institutions work to attract and retain the best and the brightest all the way through graduation. Medalcraft Mint’s design team works with academic customers to create graduation maces that elicit a sense of excellence.
